Iran Lawmaker Urge Rapid Freedom of Bahraini University Professors

"The Islamic Consultative Assembly (Parliament) believes that it is entitled to defend the rights of the Bahraini university professors and to file a lawsuit at the international circles in this regard, and it calls for the rapid freedom of the Bahraini university professors," Rapporteur of the parliament's Human Rights Committee Seyed Hossein Naqavi told FNA on Saturday.

He reminded that the detention of the Bahraini university professors is a blatant violation of human rights, and said, "Iran as a defender of the nations' rights asks the US puppet regime in Saudi Arabia to stop military intervention in the regional countries' internal affairs."

Seyed Mohammad Moussavi, Asim Ahmad, Massoud Jahromi and a large number of other lecturers are among the Bahraini professors locked up by the Saudi forces.

Last week, Bahrain center for Human Rights declared that a great number of Bahraini women such as political and social activists, doctors, teachers, housewives as well as school and university students are under intense pressures in detention.

Meantime, horrifying evidence has recently shed light on brutality of the Bahraini regime's crackdown on medical staff.

Harrowing testimony of torture, intimidation and humiliation from a doctor arrested in the crackdown on medical staff in Bahrain has revealed the lengths to which the regime's security forces are prepared to go to quash pro-democracy protests.

Interviews obtained by The Independent from inside Bahrain tell of ransacked hospitals and of terrified medical staff beaten, interrogated and forced into signing false confessions. Many have been detained, their fate unknown.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty's over-40-year rule.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states - Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar - were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13 to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

Yet, protests and rallies continued throughout the country in defiance of the martial law put in place by Manama since last month.

During the recent days, Bahrainis repeated their demand for the ouster of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and condemned Riyadh's involvement in the suppression of the revolution.

People have announced that they will continue protests until the regime collapses.
