Document - Bahrain: On trial for Telling the Truth! | Amnesty International

Hashim Adel Mohammed Saeed Al Mosawi, 22, an employee of General Electric and graduate of Newcastle University in the UK, was arrested on 18 March 2011, apparently without a warrant, in the car park of the Marriot Hotel in the capital, Manama. He was held incommunicado for nearly four months, during which he alleges he was tortured and held in solitary confinement for the first 10 days. He says he was beaten and forced to stand up for hours at a time, and then forced to sign a statement whose content he did not know; it was apparently presented later as his "confession". Only then was he allowed to call his family for the first time and tell them he was being detained by the Ministry of Interior. He was then transferred to the “Dry Dock” prison in Manama and held in solitary confinement for 10 days, where he alleges he was verbally abused and beaten by the guards. He was later transferred to another wing of the prison where he remains held with other inmates.
