Release Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace
We, the undersigned, are calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace.
Prominent Bahraini academic, activist and blogger Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace has been on hunger strike since 21 March 2015, in protest against the deprivation of basic rights and ill-treatment of prisoners in Jaw prison.
Dr Al-Singace requires specialist medical treatment for ongoing health problems, some of which result from torture and ill-treatment in prison. He is serving a life sentence for his peaceful activities as a human rights defender.
We call for the immediate and unconditional release of Dr Abduljalil Al-Singace and all those detained in Bahrain in violation of Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Bahrain is a state party. We demand that Dr Al-Singace receives full access to medical attention as a matter of urgency. We also call on Bahrain to fully investigate the allegations of ill treatment and torture at Jaw Prison, in line with its obligations under the Convention against Torture.
