Bahraini detainee severely beaten, faces continued harassment

 

 

The Head of Monitoring and Documentation at the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) Enas Oun reported on Sunday that Bahraini detainee Mohammed Al-Am was “severely beaten”. 

Oun cited complaints from the detainee’s family about his continued harassment at the Dry Dock Detection Center, which includes attempts to shave his head in a humiliating manner as well as abuse suffered at the hands of other prisoners. 

Al-Am’s family also demanded an immediate end to the ill-treatment. 

In recent months, the Dry Dock administration has been repeatedly accused of a systematic campaign of harassment against political prisoners. Last year, inmates described conditions at the facility as ‘intolerable’ and ‘tragic’.
