Mutual Evaluation Report 2018:  ‘Bahrain identified a subset of high risk NPOs for potential terrorism abuse. Yet, restrictive obligations are placed on all NPOs operating in Bahrain, regardless of their identified risk profile. While these measures may be effective at mitigating TF abuse of the NPO sector, they are not applied on a risk-basis and may unduly or inadvertently restrict NPO’s ability to access resources, including financial resources to carry out their legitimate activities.’ (Largely Compliant on Recommendation 8; Moderate on IO10)
