Bahrain regime protects torturers in defiance to international institutions

Bahrain regime protects torturers in defiance to international institutions | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

 Circulated footage showed the current Prime Minister of Bahrain assuring an officer, who is accused of torturing detainees, that “the law cannot be applied to him” and thanking him for his “good work”.

Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society in Bahrain said that this is a message from the regime to the international community that the authority is supporting the culture of impunity and the law is only used to persecute dissidents. This is an honest and direct statement made by the top official in the illegitimate government, al-Wefaq added.

Al-Wefaq stated that this is a dangerous official declaration admitting that state institutions, including the judiciary, are not independent, but rather cosmetic tools.  The people of Bahrain have long raised the demand for an independent and impartial judiciary....

Bahraini – Swedish Citizen Mohamed Habib Al Meqdad’s Testimony in front of the Court on 19/June/2012 | EBOHR

Bahraini – Swedish Citizen Mohamed Habib Al Meqdad’s Testimony in front of the Court on 19/June/2012 | EBOHR | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

....

Sheikh Mohamed Habib Al-Moqdad started his speech with greeting the judges.
And says: the case that you’re here accusing me with is totally not a crime, it’s related to free speech that you don’t allow for some reasons, and due to my political views against the government and the regime of Bahrain. You’re not accusing me; you’re accusing the people of Bahrain by taking us into prison and jail us for demanding our rights. This is the story of Bahraini people who struggled and fought for their freedom so many years, as they are struggling main time for the same reason; which is their freedom and to get their rights. The people of Bahrain fought many years for their freedom and democracy, and that’s the only way that can restore their right to live with dignity.

Bahrain: Police torture is govt policy

Bahrain: Police torture is govt policy | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Bahrain's interior minister said in comments published on Wednesday that police had been given no orders to torture or kill protesters - practices that were highlighted in a government-commissioned independent report last year.

[By not actively pursuing any criminal charges against those perpetrating these acts, the regime has made torture their governmental policy.  This is a rouge to dispell responsibility....NOT WORKING !

The responsibility for all torture in Bahrain falls squarely on the shoulders of the Al-Khalifa terrorists ..... It matters not that Osama Bin Laden didn't fly a plane into the twin towers, he organized it and condoned it....hence responsibility conveyed to him.  Same with Al-Khalifa terrorists.....]

Tortured Justice - By Brian Dooley

Tortured Justice - By Brian Dooley | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

...

The regime touts that "leading international legal, police and other experts" that have been shipped in "to advise on ... practical reforms," as Minister for Human Rights Fatima Al Balooshi told the U.N. Human Rights Council. These experts include John Yates, a former assistant commissioner to the London Metropolitan Police Service, and John Timoney, a former police chief in Miami and Philadelphia.

Some in Bahrain's government may be sincere about reform, but the gap between rhetoric and reality is huge. A new police code of conduct declares "a zero tolerance policy on torture and any other type of mistreatment" and that "force shall be not be used except when absolutely necessary or when it is used in self-defense in accordance with the law." But according to the young men from the village and others I met, these reforms are no more than empty words.

Is this 'reform Hamad?  Is this the implementations of the BICI recommendations!

Does this represent the 'new' Bahrain police under Timoney & Yates?

 

Who is charged in this egregious case of torture?  This is a crime supported and endorsed by the criminal Al-Khalifas inasmuch as they do not act decisively against the perpetrator(s) and the system that allows it.

Bahrain cop crackdown: Woman dies, boy allegedly tortured — RT | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

An elderly woman has died after Bahraini security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets at opposition rallies. Meanwhile, activists claim a young boy was beaten and sexually harassed by police during the latest crackdown. ...

The ruling Al Khalifa royal family is “killing, torturing and oppressing” people, who dare to protest against the regime, government and business consultant Christoph R. Hoerstel explained to RT. The monarchy is also denying equal economic opportunity and democratic participation to Bahraini people and the reforms it claims to be implementing is a fraud he added.
“For these reasons the people are opposed to this monarchy since so many years, I think 50 or so,” he said. “This is a truly democratic spirit at people and it should be an honor for the Western so-called democracies to support these people.” ...

The following testimony is for an employee in Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) - the host of Formula1 in Bahrain-, who was tortured behind the offices of (BIC) on 7 April 2011, before getting arrested and tortured even more at the detention centres, along with another 25 other employees.
