Bahraini Regime Continues Abusing Female Prisoners

The statement issued by the Bahrain Center for Human Rights asked for an immediate release of all Bahraini female prisoners.

The statement pointed to the case of Jalila al-Salman, a Bahraini teacher who was arrested by the al-Khalifa security forces in March, complained that she and other female prisoners are still under inhumane tortures.

The group said that security forces beat and torture these women to force them to make false confessions.

Al-Salman was arrested in March for her alleged role in coordinating a teachers' strike following the February and March protests that called for government reform.

Over 40 security officers raided Jalila's home in late March and arrested her in front of her three children. Jalila is still locked up, and her family said she has been tortured. She may get her day in court, though no exact word on when.

Other reports from Manama had also stressed earlier that the al-Khalifa regime still continues suppression of peaceful protests in the tiny Persian Gulf island despite the regime's claims about its intentions for resolving problems through negotiations.

So far, tens of people have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and about 1,000 others have been injured.

Last week Ayat Al-Qurmezi, a 20-year-old female Bahraini human rights activist who was arrested by Manama security forces for reading a poem criticizing the Bahraini prime minister, stressed that she had been under heavy pressure and different tortures in prison.

Yet, she underlined the severe tortures she had experienced in detention failed to discourage her from continuing resistance against the al-Khalifa dynasty.

"The security forces whipped me in the head and face without any mercy and they used electric shock to torture us so badly that they sent us to coma," Qurmezi told FNA.

Qurmezi also revealed that her remarks broadcast by the Bahraini state-run TV in which she regretted her past doings were made under the pressure of the Bahraini security forces, and underscored that she does not believe in apology to the al-Khalifa regime.
