Prisoner of conscience dies due to lack of adequate health care, medical doctors arrested in house raids:

 

Mohammed Mushaima, a 22 year old prisoner, died today at Salmaniya hospital just a few hours ago. He was arrested from the hospital last year when the military took over, and was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment despite his lawyers presenting documents proving that he was in the hospital at the time of his alleged crime: "illegal gathering near the financial harbour". Mushaima suffers from severe sickle cell, and his lawyers had made several requests that he be release due to the severity of his condition. In secret phone calls, Mohammed told his lawyer that he was going to die if he was not released to receive the health care he needed for his condition. There are many prisoners of conscience in Bahrain that are in need for immediate medical treatment for being ill or seriously injured due to the regime’s use of excessive force. However, they are being denied medical care, including Mohammed Sahwan whose case was reported by the BCHR.

R.I.P Mohammed :(

Mohammed Mushaima has passed away in custody today, 2.10.2012, while serving a 7 year sentence for participating in pro-democracy demonstrations in Bahrain where a peaceful revolution has started twenty months ago.

Only two days ago, the 17 year old Ali Neama was killed by the regime forces which targeted him at close range, during his participation in pro-democracy protests, riddling his body with Birdshot pellets.

Many Bahraini men, women and children have been killed in different ways, since the start of the mass revolution. The use of excessive force by the authority has also caused a number of deaths between foreign workers in the country.

Hundreds of men, women and human rights activists are still detained in the Bahraini prisons which are known for their disproportionate torture that has led to a number of deaths in custody. ...

Tens of thousands chanting against murderous Bahraini King .... #Bahrain

Thousands of the Bahraini people participated in the funeral of a Bahraini Pro-Democracy Detainee Martyred Tuesday Morning.

Thousands of Bahraini people participated  in the funeral of the youth, Mohammed Ali Mushaima (23 years old) in Aldaih village, west of the capital Manama. Mushaima passed away in custody after the regime neglected his deteriorated medical condition via the prison administration.

Mohammed was arrested from the hospital by the army last year while he was receiving his treatment for  Sickle Cell Anemia. He was sentenced for 7 years. He complained of a sickle cell disease crisis a few days ago and the prison administration neglected his complaints. He was shifted to Salmaniya medical complex hence and died there this morning.

The thousands of mourners that attended the funeral, shouted angrily against the King Hamad and the royal family condemning them for the death of the detained protester.

This new crime is only 3 days after killing a child martyr at Saddad village -western south of the capital Manama- by attacking him with a shotgun from a very close distance. These human rights violations came only a few days after the Geneva session where the Bahraini regime accepted the international community recommendations. 10/2/2012
