Khalfan al-Badwawi is a human rights campaigner who fled Oman in 2013 after having been repeatedly detained by police.
He told the Morning Star: “After the Arab Spring, protest organisers like myself sought asylum in Britain.
“The Sultan of Oman treats peaceful opponents of his regime as terrorists, so when the UK delivers counter-terrorism training there is a real risk it will be used to stifle dissidents.”
The sultan — Qaboos bin Said al Said — was installed on the throne by British troops almost half a century ago and has clung to power by suppressing left-wing revolutionaries.
In the latest sign of British support for the sultan, Whitehall is delivering a series of classes on counter-terrorism policing including a session on “crisis communications”.
The Cabinet Office’s emergency planning college (EPC) is also coaching Oman’s civil defence committee under a similar scheme.
The EPC, based in York and managed by Serco, has provided crisis management packages for the country’s state-owned national airline, ferries, civil defence and ambulance organisations.
Its scheme in Oman involves Major General Michael Charlton-Weedy, a former army officer who is now director of “international resilience training” at the Cabinet Office.
The Cabinet Office, EPC and Metropolitan Police have been approached for comment.
