However, having faith in the kings promise is much more risky for victims than it is for Mr Bassiouni and his team. The fact that many released detainees have ongoing legal cases against them also makes them more vulnerable and at risk for repeated detention and torture. Therefore, for the time being many victims are not willing to give their testimonies to the BICI commission.
The violations committed by the Bahraini government at the time of BICI's investigation shows an obvious contradiction, and raises many questions about the intentions of King Hamads decision in bringing an investigation committee to Bahrain.

King of Bahrain failing to restore country's reputation after uprising - Telegraph

King of Bahrain failing to restore country's reputation after uprising - Telegraph | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
The King of Bahrain's attempts to restore his island's reputation after a bloody crackdown on opposition protests are crumbling from political attack and repeated allegations of police brutality even from members of the island's middle classes.
...

The government's National Dialogue, its forum for negotiation with opposition groups, lay in tatters yesterday after al-Wefaq, the biggest party in parliament, announced it intended to pull out.


Meanwhile, two of the most prominent figures detained in the crackdown have described to The Daily Telegraph a routine of beatings they suffered while in captivity.

One, Ayat al-Qurmezi ....

The other, a senior surgeon at the main Salmaniya Hospital, who has asked not to be identified, said the behaviour of the authorities had alienated the non-political middle classes like himself. He was one of 48 doctors put on trial in the wake of the protests, 20 of whom remain in custody.


He said he was hit round the head, kicked and beaten with a rubber hose until he was forced to confess to inflicting the wounds suffered by protesters he was treating for their injuries, or making them worse.

Bahrain نبيل رجب torture in bahrain التعذيب في البحرين

The evil Khalifa regime is engaging in a torturous terror campaign against the Shia majority in Bahrain. The Khalifas rob their nation and privatize its wealth, they violate all norms of human rights against their citizens, and they imprison/torture/murder all people who dissent from their myopic, selfish vision! Please help in all ways possible!

Bahrain. Canadian Government Silence Over Torture Reeks of Hypocrisy.

Bahrain. Canadian Government Silence Over Torture Reeks of Hypocrisy. | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

A chronically ill Canadian man who has endured torture at the hands of the Western-backed Bahraini regime is facing a five-year jail sentence that could put his life at risk.

For the past eight months, Naser Al Raas (28), from Ottawa, has been subjected to a nightmarish ordeal: illegally detained for weeks, tortured, prosecuted by a military court, charged with offences on the basis of forced confession, denied legal counsel, and finally sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for offences he says he did not commit. On Monday, 21 November, he will hear the verdict of his appeal for release.

Al Raas suffers from a chronic heart and lung condition known as pulmonary embolism for which he underwent surgery in Ottawa when he was a teenager. Because of his detention in Bahrain, he has not been able to receive the medication that he relies on to stabilise his condition. Family and friends fear that if he is imprisoned his life will be put at serious risk.

Bahrain: Washington and London Endorse Dialogue With Tyrants, War Criminals and Torturers

Bahrain: Washington and London Endorse Dialogue With Tyrants, War Criminals and Torturers | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
Efforts by the US and British-backed Bahraini regime to repair its international image over human rights violations are in tatters with the revelation that senior members of the oil kingdom’s royal family have been personally involved in torturing hundreds of civilian detainees, including doctors and nurses.
One of the torturers-in-chief is Captain Nasser Al Khalifa, son of the king. He graduated this year “with honours” from the US Marine Corps University at Qantico, Washington.
This criminal rule by inner-circle members of the House of Al Khalifa also exposes Washington and London’s efforts to positively talk up reforms and dialogue by their Persian Gulf ally as a cynical sham. In Libya and Syria, war and sanctions are declared against alleged human rights abusers. But in Bahrain, Washington and London say pro-democracy protesters must embrace the rulers’ so-called initiative for national dialogue.
Revelations of royal family brutality in Bahrain also make a mockery of King Hamad’s announcement last month of an “independent” human rights probe into violations that took place during the Western-backed Saudi-led military invasion of the oil-rich kingdom earlier this year.
