Dated the 11th May 1939,
Will you please refer to paragraph 11 of my letter
No. C/305-l.a/4 dated the 7th May 1939 reporting on Ibn Saud 1 s
visit to Bahrain ?
2. It has now been arranged that the three leading agi
tators who are still in prison should be released and sent
out of the country for the remaining period of their sentences.
The man for whose release Ibn Saud himself requested is to be
sent to the Hejaz and the two others are to go to Bombay where
they have family connections.
3. Personally this is, I think, quite a good thing. Poli
tical prisoners are always rather troublesome and so long as
they are kept well away from Bahrain for the period of their
sentences there are obvious advantages in releasing them when
they can go to some other country. They have all done just
about seven months in prison, so that the Bahrain Government's
authority has been exhibited with some impressiveness, while
the Shaikh will get a certain amount of kudos for making pre
mature releases; and at the same time they will be well out
of the way.
