Rights conference slams Bahrain crackdown
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The Bahrain Forum for Human Rights condemned the regime’s violent crackdown on opposition groups during a conference held in Beirut and dubbed “Human Rights Violations.”

“Under the current miserable circumstances, the Bahraini people suffer from oppression, detainment, murder and the absence of freedom, equality and social justice as well as the continued imprisonment of political activists and civilians,” a statement released following the two-day meeting said.

“The meeting [in Beirut] is held to send a message of support to the Bahraini people … our conference seeks to break the media siege against the people by the rulers,” it added.

Participants urged international organizations to end crimes against humanity in the tiny Gulf state and to investigate ongoing violations against the Bahraini people.

The attendees also decided to form a legal committee to draft a legal case before international courts.
