An imprisoned Bahraini political activist, who is on the Manama regime’s death row and could be executed at any time, has reportedly been denied appropriate healthcare and pain-relief medication.
According to Hussein Moussa’s family, the prisoner has been denied treatment for more than three weeks despite the fact that he has been experiencing severe pain and swelling in his leg, which has rendered him unable to walk, the Arabic-language Lualua television network reported.
Last October, Bahrain’s supreme court of appeal overturned the death sentence handed down to Moussa and sent the case back to a lower court.
On December 29, 2014, a Bahraini criminal court sentenced Moussa to death. It had relied on statements extracted under torture.
Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011.
They are demanding that the Al Khalifa regime relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established.
