"The Prisoners: Criminals or Victims??"



It is said that today there are almost 60 political prisoners in Bahrain.

Many of them have been charged with participating in an illegal gathering. According to Bahraini law, any gathering of more than five people in a public place without a permit is considered illegal and is punishable by law (upto 2 yrs imprisonment).

In the press, these prisoners have been shown as criminals. But do you think it is wise to depend only on the Bahraini press for information on this issue??

Do you want to know more???
