    Bahrain’s opposition group concerned over condition of prisoners


    by PressTV

    Bahrain's main opposition group has voiced its grave concern over the condition of prisoners in the Persian Gulf kingdom.
    In a statement, Al-Wefaq’s Human Rights Department says it has received reports that prisoners in Bahrain’s Jua prison are suffering from inadequate conditions. The statement came after families of the prisoners complained to the department about mistreatment and inadequate basic humanitarian needs like water and air-conditioning despite the very hot weather during summer. Reports say each cell in Jua prison is overcrowded with more than 100 prisoners.
