Detainee in Bahrain’s Jaw Prison beaten, assaulted


A new report has revealed that a Bahraini political dissident currently held at the notorious Jaw Prison has been tormented as the ruling Al Khalifah regime continues to clamp down on opposition figures for the peaceful exercise of their right to freedom of expression.

Informed sources, requesting not to be named, told Britain-based Arabic-language Bahrain al-Youm news agency that policeman Mohammed Atef entered the cell of 21-year-old Yousef Ali Riza at the notorious Jaw Prison, south of capital Manama,  early last month as he was sleeping and assaulted him.

The police officer, confronted by Yousef, later alleged that the young prisoner had been trying to assault him.

Prison officials removed Yousef from his cell and placed him in solitary confinement, where he was purportedly stripped of his clothes, beaten, and assaulted.
