Bahraini prisoners of conscience continue to endure abuses in Jaw Prison

 

The family of a detainee in Bahrain’s Jaw Prison, who wished to remain anonymous, reported on Saturday that prisoners of conscience at the facility are still being subjected to abuses. 

The prison administration is reportedly continuing to broaden the restrictions on the detainees and subject them to humiliating treatment. 

Political prisoners in Jaw are also routinely denied access to desperately needed medical care and are punished for complaining or speaking out against the cruel practices. 

In September of last year, over 1,000 Bahraini prisoners launched a hunger strike in protest of the living conditions and abuses in detention.
