Bahrain Center for Human Rights issued a new report entitled “From 2011 to 2019: The Screams of Torture Still Echo”, on the occasion of International Day in Support of Victims of Torture. The report is published in English language to highlight the acts and victims of torture in Bahrain since 2011.

The report provides an overview of the current status of human rights violations in Bahrain, particularly those pertaining to allegations of ill-treatment and torture of political prisoners, while held in police custody. It also provides a background on the status of torture in Bahrain by providing readers with a glance at earlier cases and events of the last few years.

In a number of recommendations, BCHR calls on the Bahraini government to abide by applicable international and national law prescriptions, and calls on the international community to take immediate steps to address the culture of impunity and the clearly illegal use of torture and ill-treatment, to which individuals continue to be subjected at the hands of the security forces of Bahrain in 2019.
