A human rights activist from the Middle East has condemned the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) for entering into contracts with Saudi Arabia and Bahrain despite their record on human rights.

Maryam Al-Khawaja, the director of the Gulf Centre for Human Rights, also criticised the UK government saying “Britain is the largest obstacle to human rights being upheld in Bahrain.”

Before a visit to Scotland this week for the human rights film festival Take One Action, she told The Times that the human rights situation was deteriorating in Bahrain and that teachers who spoke out against the government had been detained.
