SHAFAQNA-Activists on social media outlets said that Bahraini security forces raided on early Monday morning (December 28, 2015) the house of the former member of the municipality council Hamid Al-Basri in the village of Sanabis.

Sources close to the family said that the authorities confiscated his mobile phone, personal laptop and an external hard-drive without presenting a search warrant.
