Threats, intimidation, and attacks against human rights defenders and independent journalists in Bahrain.
Human rights defenders in Bahrain exposed to an unprecedented campaign of repression in the history of Bahrain after the government attacked the peaceful protests that began in February 14, 2011, where the government and security forces have committed massive human rights violations that included arbitrary arrests, torture, enforced disappearances, Bringing in foreign troops to attack civilians, sexual assaults and death threats, deaths in custody, dismissal from the job, travel ban, smear campaigns, Harassment of family members on an ongoing basis, lengthy incommunicado detention, Provision of civilians before military tribunals and mock trials.
In this report, we will explore some examples of prominent human rights defenders who faced these inhuman violations which indicate clearly the existence of systematic planning at the highest levels of the State to firstly prevent human rights defenders from carrying out their legitimate peaceful work and secondly in preparation for the elimination of Bahrain's human rights movement.
