Violation of human rights in Bahrain
Shabestan news agency: A tragedy of human rights violation in Bahrain has been noted on international scale.

Shabestan news agency reported with the reference of amnesty web site that The authorities revoked the nationality of Bahrainis convicted of terrorism-related offences or other illegal acts, stripping at least 208 people, including nine children, of their citizenship during the year, rendering many stateless. An appeal court reinstated the nationality of nine individuals.

Torture and other ill-treatment of detainees, mainly suspects in security or terrorism-related cases, remained rife, particularly within the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID). Police and other security officials also beat or otherwise abused people when arresting them and transporting them to police stations. At Jaw Prison, detainees faced repeated beatings, were required to sleep in tents and were denied any communication with their families for several weeks after the security forces used tear gas and shotguns to quell a disturbance at the prison in March.

Hundreds of people were convicted in unfair trials on charges of rioting, illegal gathering or committing terrorism-related offences. Many defendants in terrorism cases were convicted largely on the basis of “confessions” that they said interrogators had forced them to make under torture; some received death sentences.
