Harassment against Female political prisoners in Bahrain continue


Bahraini activist Ibtisam Al-Saegh said that the authorities continued their harassment against female political prisoners. 

She explained that detainee Amira Al-Qashaami complained about  confiscating her belongings, Al-Saegh added that despite promising Amira to return her belongings, none has been returned yet. 

As for detainee Hajar Mansour, Al-Saegh said that the authorities confiscated her children's photos. Mansour considered this act an unjustified attack and that preventing her from keeping their photos is an additional punishment. 

Al-Saegh stated that the detainee, Madina Ali, is still without a bed and that she sleeps on cell's floor, despite promises to provide her with a bed that maintains her right and dignity. 

Al-Saegh concluded saying that detainee Najah Al-Sheikh sees that "the searching measures are humiliating and that confiscation of personal belongings is a punishment added to the series of violations practiced against female prisoners of conscience in particular."
