Human Rights Watch: Hundreds of Innocents Railroaded in Bahrain in Joke Trials…

Human Rights Watch issued a report this week revealing that officials in Bahrain have been using the ordinary criminal courts to trump up charges against innocents in politically motivated trials to crush dissent.  Report here.  Details here.

One response to “Human Rights Watch: Hundreds of Innocents Railroaded in Bahrain in Joke Trials…

  1. Thanks for your great work exposing human rights violations in Bahrain. I also noticed that Mark Godsey’s Twitter account has been suspended as one of mine has, also. The Bahraini and Saudi regimes are on a PR campaign which includes having the voices of dissidents and bloggers Twitter accounts suspended for spurious reasons. Twitter’s policy of suspending accounts before any investigation is helping the dictators silence our voices.
    I hope we can turn a corner on this policy of censorship soon.
    Thanks
