Slaves ‘can be bought for £60 and most of us have met one without knowing’, Thomson Reuters head says

Slaves ‘can be bought for £60 and most of us have met one without knowing’, Thomson Reuters head says | Human Rights | Scoop.it

Slavery is rampant and most people are likely to have met a slave without realising it, ....

“The common denominator of all these crimes is the evil intention to strip a human being of their freedom and then to use and abuse them, control and exploit them. One can think that slavery belongs to the history books, but far from that, it’s worse today than ever in history.”....

Bahrain: Al Wefaq Writes to HCHR, Concern over Condition of Prisoners

Bahrain: Al Wefaq Writes to HCHR, Concern over Condition of Prisoners | Human Rights | Scoop.it

Al Wefaq National Islamic Society said no information has been released in the past 5 days on the conditions of a number of prisoners in Juw prison, including Sheikh Mohammed Ali Al Mahfoodh, the Secretary-General of the Islamic Action Society.

This is despite news that has been circulating on the mistreatment of the prisoners in the prison and that two of the prisoners are wounded. However, the families of the prisoners have not received any phone calls from the prison.

Al Wefaq has sent an urgent appeal to the Special Procedures Division in the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights concerning the situation of the prisoners in Juw prison.

The Authority in Bahrain is fully responsible for the safety of the prisoners who are facing vengeful measures by denying them their fundamental human rights, Al Wefaq stated. Shockingly, state institutions and foundations concerned for human rights such as the Ombudsman Office, the National Institution for Human Rights, the General Inspector, Public Prosecution Office and Ministry of Human Rights all remain silent towards this situation.

Al Wefaq also notes the Interior Ministry’s silence, even though it is the body responsible for the administration of prisons, stressing that such practices are illegal and considered a serious violation of the rights of the prisoners.
