Bahrain: Another three Bahraini activists summoned for questioning

September 15, 2017

The head of the Bahrain Human Rights Observatory (BHRO), Jalila al-Salman, human rights lawyer, Mohammed Issa al-Tajer, and an activist with the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR), Hussein Radhi have been ordered to appear for questioning before Manama’s public prosecutor on Thursday.
The names are the latest additions to the rapidly expanding list of activists and journalists being subjected to trumped-up charges and travel bans.

During the course of a week, more than ten political and human rights activists have been summoned for interrogation by the public prosecutor.

On Wednesday, Jalila al-Salman was prevented from leaving Bahrain as she attempted to cross the causeway connecting the kingdom with neighboring Saudi Arabia.

Activists say the measures are designed to keep them away from international forums like the 36th session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), which runs between September 11 and September 29 in Geneva.
