Amnesty urges Bahrain to free woman demonstrator, Fadhila Mubarak

Amnesty urges Bahrain to free woman demonstrator, Fadhila Mubarak | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

DUBAI: Amnesty International urged Bahraini authorities to release a female protester after the court of cassation on Monday upheld her jail sentence for demonstrating and listening to "revolutionary" songs.

...

"Fadhila Mubarak is a prisoner of conscience who was reportedly beaten and tortured in detention and then sentenced in an unfair trial before a military court on spurious charges for standing up for her rights," said Hassiba Hadj-Sahraoui, the rights group's Middle East and North Africa deputy director.

"The Bahraini authorities must release her immediately and unconditionally," she said, adding that Mubarak's sentence "only serves to demonstrate the intolerance of the authorities and the failures of the justice system."

Bahrain activists jailed following 'politically motivated' trials | Amnesty International

Bahrain activists jailed following 'politically motivated' trials | Amnesty International | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it
The trials of 15 activists convicted over their involvement in pro-reform protests in Bahrain that began in February, were politically motivated and unfair, Amnesty International said today.

A military court in Bahrain’s capital city Manama has over the last few days sentenced the 15 activists, in two separate cases, to between one and four years imprisonment for “participating in illegal demonstrations and inciting hatred against the regime” during popular protests in February and March.

One of the activists, Fadhila Mubarak Ahmad, is the first woman protester to be convicted as a result of the recent unrest in Bahrain. She was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment.

“These trials and convictions represent yet further evidence of the extent to which the rights to freedom of speech and assembly are now being denied in Bahrain,” said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty International’s director for Middle East and North Africa.

Fadeela listened to some Feb 14 - pro-democracy music in her car.  She was stopped by the criminal Khalifa regime and has been in prison ever since.   

CAN YOU IMAGINE LIVING UNDER A GOVERNMENT THAT WAS SO PARANOID THAT A WOMAN'S MUSIC SELECTION IN HER CAR IS TOO THREATENING FOR THE REGIME TO ALLOW HER TO GO FREE?!
