Nearly 1,000 rights abuses committed in Bahrain in January: Report

 

A new report on the rights situation in Bahrain has suggested that regime of Manama committed around 1,000 cases of abuse against dissidents in January, 2018.

The report by the Bahrain Forum for Human Rights (BFHR) published Saturday said a total of 995 cases of rights violation by the Bahraini government were recorded past month.

It said 121 people, including six minors, were arrested arbitrarily during house raids by government forces over the past month. The report added that authorities used torture and other forms of violence against 18 detainees, including eight minors and four women, in prison facilities and police stations across the island country. Some 17 Bahrainis also disappeared in January, most of them people with records of participating in protests.

The finding of the report, published in a pro-opposition Bahraini website, also showed that the Bahraini judiciary handed down a total of 679 years of prison sentences to 77 rights campaigners, merely due to their contribution to the protests.
