In December Sir David Keene made a further visit to Bahrain. This visit built on the previous work undertaken y Sir David and other representatives of the Foundation and had two elements. Firstly a two day seminar, the objective of which was to explore the permission to appeal process used in the Court of Appeals of England and Wales to explore if there were any elements of this process that could be adapted for use within the Bahraini Judiciary. The second element was a meeting with members of the Bahraini Bar Association to discuss professional ethics and explore appeals issues from a lawyers perspective.
