The Senate has unanimously passed an Australian Greens resolution calling on the Government to make direct representations on behalf of jailed Bahraini human rights activist Mr Nabeel Rajab.
Greens Senator for Western Australia Scott Ludlam thanked Senators for their concern for Mr Rajab.
"Mr Rajab is a prominent pro-democracy and human rights campaigner. He was arrested by Bahraini authorities on May 5 shortly after being interviewed by Australian journalist Julian Assange. We must now turn concern into action."
