Inhuman zionist Bahrain Regime forces detained 214 kids in 2013: Report

Inhuman zionist Bahrain Regime forces detained 214 kids in 2013: Report | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Bahraini police forces have detained more than 200 children across the Persian Gulf nation during raids on their homes and over the past year, the country’s main opposition group said.
In a Thursday report titled “Bahrain: Repression – The Shadow of Tyranny,” Bahrain’s Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society listed the human rights violations committed by the Manama regime in the course of 2013.
According to the nearly 130-page report, Bahraini regime forces detained 214 children last year, with most of them being detained during raids on their houses. A number of other children were also taken from their schools, the report added.
The report, drafted by Al-Wefaq’s Liberties and Human Rights Department (LHRD), further said the Bahraini regime made 7,342 arbitrary arrests between 2011 and 2013. It also highlighted the demolition of religious structures in the Persian Gulf country as well as Manama’s restrictions on religious freedom.
“The human rights situation in Bahrain has reached dangerous levels,” said Sayed Hadi al-Musawi, the LHRD head, adding, “Bahraini citizens are exposed to different forms of violations…, including killing, torture and arrest.”
The LHRD official further criticized the international community for remaining silent in the face of the Manama regime’s numerous human rights violations, saying that the world “is standing on the sidelines and watching as the atrocious human rights abuses continue in broad day light.”...

Amnesty slams Bahrain for kids’ torture

Amnesty slams Bahrain for kids’ torture | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Amnesty International has slammed Bahraini authorities for torturing children, some as young as 13 years old, who had been arrested for allegedly participating in anti-regime protests across the Persian Gulf kingdom.

“By rounding up suspected under-age offenders and locking them up, Bahrain’s authorities are displaying an appalling disregard for its international human rights obligations,” the organization said in a statement released on Sunday.

Referring to ongoing crackdown of the Al Khalifa regime on pro-democracy protesters, the statement noted that “Nearly three years after Bahrain’s security forces used excessive force to crush anti-government protests, they now appear to be targeting children in an intensified crackdown.”

“All children under the age of 18 who have not committed any recognizable offence must be released immediately. Any allegations of torture and ill-treatment must be thoroughly investigated.”

The statement also condemns Bahrain for harsh jail terms on children, saying, “Bahrain’s government purports to respect human rights yet it is brazenly flouting international obligations on a routine basis by resorting to extreme measures such as imposing harsh prison sentences on children.”...

Two Bahraini children sentenced to 10 years imprisonment | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

BCHR: Two Bahraini children Ebrahim Al Muqdad and Jehad Sadeq were sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment based on confessions reportedly extracted under torture. Both children have already been in prison for more than 8 months.

On 4 April 2013, the High Criminal Court issued a verdict sentencing Jehad Sadeq Aziz Salman (16 years old) and Ebrahim Ahmed Radi al-Moqdad (15 years old) to 10 years imprisonment under the vague terrorism law for alleged charges of “burning an armoured vehicle”, along with another five persons who were sentenced between 10 and 15 years imprisonment. The families were not allowed into the courtroom for the reading of the verdict. Ebrahim and Jehad were tried at the criminal court instead of a juvenile court. Lawyer Zahra Masood, who represented Jehad Sadeq in this case wrote:.....

Bahrain Forces Assault Children under Five during Playtime

Bahrain Forces Assault Children under Five during Playtime | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Bahraini regime forces assaulted two children aged under five by beating them and kicking them near their house in Bani Jamra on Friday.

Live witnesses said on Twitter that the two children, 4 years old and 5 years old, were beaten while playing near their house in a residential neighborhood in the region, and were later thrown on the street.

For its part, Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society considered that the assault came in the context of oppression and collective punishment by the regime forces against safe citizens.

Al-Wefaq pointed out that shortly after the assault the area was attacked by suffocating and tear gas, considering that “this is part of the oppressive response to the majority’s political demands of a democratic change in Bahrain.”

Amnesty Mocks regime: Size of Prison Clothes Does not Suit Prisoners

On another hand, Amnesty International mocked Bahrain’s prosecution of two children, indicating that when two teenagers Jihad Sadek (16 years old) and Ibrahim Meqdad (17 years old) were sentenced to jail, the authorities had to cut out prison clothes because their size wasn’t available.

Amnesty said this case briefs what tens of Bahraini children are suffering from in adult prisons.
