URGENT APPEAL: Hassan Oun's life in danger | Bahrain Center for Human Rights | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Hassan and his family have been targeted by the regime continuously and have suffered countless abuses in the past year. Hassan’s older brother, Jaffar Oun, is a political prisoner. On the same day Hassan was arrested the police also went to his younger brother’s school to arrest him. Though only 16, his younger brother Ahmed Oun was also previously arrested for one month and a half for political reasons.

Besides being arrested 5 times, Hassan has also been seriously injured twice after being fired at by riot police while participating in peaceful protests. The first time Hassan was injured with birdshot, because he was afraid of arrest if he went to hospital Hassan still has pellets in his body from that injury. Hassan was also shot with a stun grenade in his face and his thigh.
