ICSRF demands investigation into torture against jailed Bahraini minor
ICSRF demands investigation into torture against jailed Bahraini minor
 
 
Islam times - - The International Center for Supporting Rights and Freedoms (ICSRF) called on Bahrain’s public prosecutor to promptly open an investigation into fresh allegations of torture coming out of Jaw Prison.
 
According to information obtained by the ICSRF, the prison’s guards assaulted 17-year old Sayed Ali Abbas on October 14, leaving him with a number of injuries.

Abbas’ family reported that traces of the assault are clearly visible all over the minor’s head and body.

The ICSRF, a member of the Coalition for the International Criminal Court, reminded Manama of its obligation to insure that Abbas does not endure any bodily harm while in the custody of the state and that his imprisonment is not an excuse for torture.
