BCHR welcomes the recent release of prisoners

The Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) welcomes the recent release of several detainees, including Naji Fateelamong over 1,500 people pardoned and released, in Bahrain, which marks a significant turn of events, reflecting the efforts of various human rights organizations and activists. Despite this positive development, the BCHR emphasizes the ongoing necessity of securing the freedom of all individuals unjustly detained for their human rights work in the country.

Among those still held are Dr. Abduljalil Al-Singace and Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, whose prolonged detention continues to draw international concern. Al-Khawaja’s situation, compounded by health issues, has prompted calls for Denmark to intervene and facilitate his access to medical care abroad.

While support gatherings and online campaigns signal solidarity, sustained advocacy efforts remain essential in ensuring justice for all political prisoners in Bahrain. Therefore, amplifying calls for the release of Al-Khawaja and Al-Singace through initiatives like the #FreeAlKhawaja and #FreeAlSingace campaigns can contribute significantly to raising awareness and support for their cause.
