An International Human Rights centre renewed its recommendations for victims of medical neglect and torture to prosecute leaders of the Bahraini regime, who are involved in violations against political activists.
The International Center for the Support of Rights and Freedoms, a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC) coalition, specifically singled out Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa, his son, Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad, and Minister of Interior Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa.
In a written statement previously published and recalled on Twitter, the Center affirmed the right of political prisoners and their families to sue the King of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa, due to the coronavirus outbreak inside prisons.
He pointed out that the King of Bahrain refused to release political opponents and activists despite repeated demands from the first day of the spread of Covid-19 for the release of unjust detainees in prisons in inhumane conditions.
They were also previously tortured into confessing incriminating charges.
Suing top leaders of the regime
The Center stressed in a written statement that all of these persons have a legal right to request material compensation from the King of Bahrain, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Interior, with their qualities and personalities.
According to the fixed rule in civil law, “perpetrators who cause harm to others shall be obligated to pay compensation.
The Center for Human Rights expressed its regret “because what we had expected has happened, and the Covid-19 pandemic has spread in Bahrain’s prisons.”
He accused the Bahraini authorities of ignoring all calls for help from human rights organizations about the virus outbreak, as they were claiming that things were fine and under control.
He called on the Human Rights Council member states “to urgently take the necessary measures towards the member state–Bahrain after its constant misleading and causing a humanitarian catastrophe inside its prisons and wasting the right to life.
This week, the Center for Human Rights accused the Bahraini regime of being subjected to a fierce confrontation within the “NGO Committee” affiliated with the United Nations.
The International Center for the Support of Rights and Freedoms asserted that the Bahraini regime leaders took revenge because of its encouragement for Bahrain’s detainees and their families to sue the King of Bahrain and those responsible for committing violations against them.
He added that the system is not democratic, and it is a form of government in which the person of the king is the head of the state for life or even abdicates the throne. In this system, the king’s powers expand in all the sectors of the state.
There was a state of controversy and severe criticism in Britain that Home Secretary Priti Patel hosted her Bahraini counterpart, who is blamed for the recent torture of political prisoners in Jaw Central Prison.
British media, politicians and rights activists criticized the hosting of the Bahraini minister, which means that the United Kingdom continues to whitewash the violations of the Bahraini regime, they said.
Representatives in Parliament called for a ban on aid to the repressive Gulf state because of the violence. The High Commissioner for Human Rights was condemned as “a violation of international law.”
This came in the wake of reports of multiple other human rights violations in Bahrain, including evidence that detained children as young as 13 years old were beaten and threatened with rape.
