On August 5, Bahrain's Higher Appeal Court was scheduled to rule on Nabeel Rajab 's lawless three-month prison sentence. A decision was postponed until August 12 or later.
Rajab serves as BCHR president and Gulf Center for Human Rights (GCHR) director.
He was imprisoned for championing human rights. Bahrainis have none. Washington shows no concern. Police state violence is ignored.
Previous appeals on Rajab's behalf failed. He's currently at Jaw Central Prison. He's held under appalling conditions. He's denied medical treatment he needs. On July 16, a hearing occurred relating to another case.
