RAPE & TORTURE in #Bahrain ! #Rape #Torture

This is the rape story in Bahrain"
I was a sleep.  I am with my baby in my mother's house as I do every Friday night bcz my husband and I live in a region where clashes and gassings happen every friday night & bcz I'm pregnant so I sleep at my mom's house.  On Friday morning I went to the Ansar galiri mall to buy some things.  The road wasn't full and the SF's pulled me over in a civilian car.  Inside the car were Yemeni  & Bahraini officers.  I was afraid of them so I only slightly rolled down the window and asked them what they wanted,  The Bahraini officer told me to step out of  the car.  I was afraid and suddenly the other officer jerked me out of the car.  They took me to a house without furniture only ceramics and took me to a room.  The Yemeni officer got out the room and closed the door.  I did not know what the Bahraini officer would do to me until I hear his breath close to me.  I said, "Please!  I am five months pregnant!"  I wore a closed Abaya that he couldn't open, so he raised it to my waist.  I kicked him and he returned and approached me!  I was crying and screaming. "Please!  I am pregnant!"  But he did NOT stop and he put his finger inside me.   I kicked him!   He told me that he would kick me in my  belly again!  He then attacked me and raped me!   Then they threw me into my car.  I called my husband and told him to come to my mom's house.   I went there  and I took a shower.   I did not know what to do... I didn't tell my mother about what happened but I told my husband.  He asked me to try to tell my story so the criminal will be put in jail!   But where is the law in Bahrain?!
In the end, I don't like to come near my baby and my husband bcz I  feel I am not good enough for them any more bcz I'm dirty.......

Spencer Haskins's insight:

SHE is NOT dirty!  SHE is not unclean!  SHE is totally righteous before Allah and before all humankind!  It is the POLICE OFFICERS who are unclean, unworthy, and unholy before Allah and the World!  

 

These 'officers' should be publically emasculated before a public hanging!

When the police ARE the rapists, it is no wonder that the woman does not go to a 'police' station to document the crime! Horrid SF's! Yasqot Hamad!

Rape as Weapon of War Is UN Focus

Rape as Weapon of War Is UN Focus | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
It took a video going “viral” of a Libyan woman being dragged from a Tripoli hotel -- shouting that she’d been raped for two days by 15 men -- to put a face and name to a weapon of war that dates back at least to the founding of ancient Rome. - Iman Obeidi

A heartbreaking story from Jaw prison in #Bahrain: Rape of a detainee by a prison officer

A heartbreaking story from Jaw prison in #Bahrain: Rape of a detainee by a prison officer | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

On one night the officer in charge came to the prison, opened the cells and started threatening the prisoners there, it was something unusual but the detainees stayed silent while he shouts. They didn't know that he was checking the detainees for his pervert needs.

Then he ordered to close all the cells but one, he chose a good looking young man and ordered him to take off his clothes, the detainee refused to do that, this happened in front of all the detainees there! The officer insisted and asked him again and again for several times and the detainee kept refusing. The officer then ordered the other policemen to take the detainee out of the cell, his cell mates tried to prevent them from doing that but they couldn't stop them.

The officer raped the young man in the prison and all other prisoners could hear his screams for help! The other detainees went mad and in an attempt to make him stop they started to make noises and hit their heads in the doors, one of them was hysterical and passed out while trying to break the door.

The young man was out of his cell bleeding, other detainees where screaming and crying for help, "Allahu Akbar | God is great" they shouted but there's no one who could help!

The prison officer didn't get enough! He ordered to punish the detainees by bringing another guy to rape him! Once he opened another cell, there was a huge fuss and the police used force to make the detainees calm down. He also used special forces to interfere and beat the detainees, and then they took the injured ones to get medical treatment in another prison - Alqalaa - medical facility.

The detainees started a hunger strike to make the prison authority know that this is not acceptable. They were punished by cutting off the electricity and water, and preventing them from having family visits for several weeks.
