Bahrain faced calls at the United Nations on Monday to release its political prisoners, including prominent rights activist Nabeel Rajab who is charged with tweeting insults against the government.
The Gulf kingdom came under scrutiny by members of the UN Human Rights Council, which is examining Bahrain's rights record as part of its four-yearly review process.
"France condemns the arbitrary arrests and ongoing charges against defenders of human rights, trade unionists and campaigners for simply expressing their opinions," said French ambassador to the UN in Geneva Nicolas Niemtchinow, who highlighted the case of Rajab and fellow activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja.
Rajab, who heads the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, has been leading anti-government protests following a brutal crackdown on Shiite-led demonstrations against the ruling Sunni Al-Khalifa dynasty in March 2011....
Rajab was detained on May 5 for "insulting a statutory body via Twitter" and also faces trial for taking part in a Manama demonstration three months ago.
Khawaja was convicted last June of plotting to overthrow the government and has been on a hunger strike since February 8.
At the meeting France requested a "humanitarian response" for the dissident and Denmark said he should be released for treatment.
The United States meanwhile called for a review of the convictions of all people involved in non-violent protest and Britain recommended new trials for all defendants convicted in military courts.
America is all about freedom, when it comes to talking....
America is all about profits for Corporations when it comes to action!
GCC talks of a Bahrain'unification' with Saudi Arabia.....
Escalation of live-fire shotgun blasts upon inarmed civilian Shiites........
I think these events are linked by more than their concurrence......
Maybe linked by Wahhabist zeal, hatred, and myopic morality?!
'Unification' is: 1. A military move against Iran, Bahrainis have no complicity in this paranoia .... 2. An attempt to whitewash the atrocities of the Al-Khalifa regime by
disolving the state they 'governed' by annexation into KSA.... 3. A persecutory move against Shiites everywhere by the extremist Wahhabis...4.....

The U.S.-backed monarchy in Bahrain continues the crackdown on protesters, with reports of many injuries and at least one death over the weekend.
Formula One drivers took to the race track yesterday following days of violent clashes between police and protesters in Bahrain, with organisers defying calls for the controversial Grand Prix to be cancelled.
Heightened security in anti-government strongholds prevented protesters from demonstrating in large numbers. The event was the ruling Sunni monarchy's opportunity to show that life had returned to normal after security concerns over anti-government protests led to the cancellation of last year's race.
Officials put the attendance at yesterday's race at 28,000, in a circuit that can hold 45,000 spectators.
"There are armoured vehicles at the entrance to every village. If anyone emerges now they will just be shot at. The government has sent a very strong message," activist Dr Alaa Shehabi said.
Human right violations after 23 November 2011 till 20/4/2012...
Human rights are still being violated in Bahrain despite promises of reform, according to the campaign group Amnesty International.
As the country prepares to host the Grand Prix, Amnesty warns "no-one should be under any illusions that the country's human rights crisis is over".
"Their reforms have only scratched the surface," said Amnesty's Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.
More than 40 people died in last year's unrest and 1,600 were arrested.
"The authorities are trying to portray the country as being on the road to reform but we continue to receive reports of torture and use of unnecessary and excessive force against protests," said Ms Sahraoui......

The Bahrain Center for Human Rights condemns the authorities’ systematic acts of violence against children in Bahrain. Children’s rights have been abused and violated since the start of the revolution while violations continue to escalate on a daily basis.
Document the crime and submit all facts to the ICC for prosecution of the Al-Khalifa regime who enforces this, sanctions this behavior, and provides the weaponry and ammunition!
