Bahraini prisoners are beaten during the first day of the holy month of Ramadan
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - The detainee has suffered from severe bleeding as a result of his injuries and has been denied proper treatment. Reports confirmed that he has been taken to a non-specialized clinic, but the level of his injuries requires treatment in a hospital.
Other reports from the prison confirm that detainees have been exposed to mistreatment along with a low level of hygiene and sub-standard food. This is of particular concern for those imprisoned since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan who are fasting in a bad environment with improper feeding and a prison administration that ignores the need for basic hygiene.
The poor conditions exist despite a number of prisoners demanding an improvement in their prison environment.
