HRW slams Bahraini regime for torturing detainees

Human Rights Watch criticized Bahrain’s Al Khalifa regim


Human Rights Watch criticized Bahrain’s Al Khalifa regime for “mistreatment and torture” of detainees during interrogations.

In an 84-page report, the rights group said the techniques employed by the Bahraini regime violate ‘its obligations as a state party to the United Nations Convention against Torture’.

Earlier, Bahrain had claimed that it put an end to torturing prisoners; however, the recent report revealed that it still uses brutal techniques in interrogating the detainees.

The HRW’s report detailed the accounts of ten prisoners who said they had endured “coercive interrogations” at Ministry of Interior’s Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) and in police stations since 2012. It also provided the accounts of four former inmates of the notorious Jaw prison, who said that they had been tortured as recently as March.
