SHAFAQNA – Al Wefaq National Islamic Society expresses full solidarity with the political prisoners and prisoners of conscience on hunger strike in Bahrain. The prisoners are protesting the abusive practices of the prison’s administration as part of the Authority’s reprisal against dissidents calling for a democratic transition.
Al Wefaq is deeply concerned over the poor humanitarian conditions inside the Jaw prison, and which the Authority takes full responsibility for the results of.
There is a tendency of escaping and denying responsibility of the consequences of the official inhume practices against the prisoners, resulting in repetition of such problems and providing impunity to the perpetrators.
Al Wefaq urges national and international human rights organizations to act to bring an end to these abuses.
