Bahraini torture victims have gathered in Britain to publicize the terrifying ordeal they have faced in regime custody, Press TV reports.
A group of people, most of whom have experienced torture in the jails of the Bahraini regime, gathered in the UK on Thursday to voice their solidarity with the victims of torture in Bahrain.
They called the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom “The Kingdom of Torture.”
“Honestly, I don’t like to speak as a victim because victims are everywhere in Bahrain,” said Mohammad al-Tajir, a human rights lawyer, who has faced two months of interrogation and torture in Bahrain.
He added that prisoners can be found in all families in Bahrain and they can talk about their experience in Bahraini jails.
The Bahraini activists also gathered outside the UN office in Manama on Thursday, holding photographs of the political prisoners tortured by the regime forces in detention centers.
