Prominent human rights defender in Bahrain to start a new hunger strike

Prominent human rights defender and founder of the Bahrain Centre for Human rights (BCHR) and the Gulf Center for Human Rights (GCHR) has declared an open hunger strike “in protest against the continuation of arbitrary arrest and detention.”

 

In a statement made to members of his immediate family during a visit today the Bahraini human rights defender declared that he would refuse all food and liquids with the exception of water. He also informed his family that due to the drugging, force feeding and the forced ending of his last hunger strike, he will also refuse to be taken to any hospital, the prison clinic or to receive any IV treatment during his strike.
