Bahraini princess accused of torturing hospital medical staff

A BAHRAINI princess has been accused of involvement in the torture of detainees during the country's suppression of anti-government protesters this year. Some of the doctors who have been sentenced to lengthy jail terms for supporting the Shia-led protests against the ruling al-Khalifa family have alleged that Sheikha Noora bint Ibrahim al-Khalifa beat prisoners with sticks and a rubber hose, and gave electric shocks to the face with a cable.
The case against the doctors has provoked international condemnation of the Bahrain government. The medical staff allege they were tortured in custody and forced to sign false confessions.
The princess works as an undercover police detective in counter-narcotics. Born into the third tier of the royal family, she is believed to be a cousin of Queen Sabika bint Ibrahim al-Khalifa. - Full article

I hope the whole issue will be brought up before a fairminded court...Ive even seen some muslim women being attacked in Manamah during the demonstrations but I never believed that a close member of the family had tortured or violated anyone themselves...its difficult to see the truth in all the chaos & I hope that there is going to be real justice and the victims get some kind of compensation for their suffering...

Bahrain Celebrate the 40th National Day and the 12th Throne succession

Bahrain News Agency | Bahrain Celebrate the 40th National Day and the 12th Throne succession
Bahrain celebrates two valuable occasions, at the same time, the Kingdom faces the greatest challenge a country could ever face.
In last few months, Bahrain presented a fine example, under the wise leadership of the country and the support of social power, in proving its ability in facing and containing the challenge the country witnessed in the beginning of current year.
In fact, the importance of celebrating these two occasions is getting greater because both occasions frame the national work system in a fantastic harmony between the state and the community from one side and the wise leadership on the other side, both sides work together for the sake of protecting and raising the name of this country.

The sons of the Bahraini King involved in violations against civilians
The Bahraini Forum for Human Rights intends to issue a report on the involvement of several sons of the Bahraini King and other members of the ruling family in violations against civilians that go against human rights.
The forum announced in a statement that its monitoring and follow-up team is currently receiving testimonies that prove the involvement of several members of the royal family, most notably Nasser bin Hamad and Khaled bin Hamad, in cases of torturing citizens, political activists, and civilians in detention centers or at checkpoints.
The statement confirmed that once the report is done it will be relayed to the legal office for legal action.
