Bahraini Shia prisoner may go blind over denial of treatment: Report

 

Bahraini activists say an imprisoned Shia activist is at serious risk of losing his eyesight due to abuse and denial of medical treatment as the ruling Al Khalifah regime.

The Karrana Prisoners’ Commission stated on Sunday that the health condition of Salman Abdul Nabi Ibrahim, who has been sentenced to 95 years in jail and whose nationality has been revoked, is deteriorating, Arabic-language and independent Manama Post online newspaper reported.

The commission went on to say that the inmate is complaining of significant weakness in his eyesight after being severely beaten on the head during his torture at the notorious Jaw Prison.

It noted that the family of the Bahraini prisoner has repeatedly demanded prison officials to provide him with an ophthalmologist, but the requests have gone unanswered.
