Since anti-Al-Khalifa protests began early last year, Al-Tajer was persecuted for defending human rights and denouncing Bahraini repression publicly.

Founded in 1922, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) is the oldest international human rights organization. It represents 164 member organizations in over 100 countries.

On April 18, 2011, it reported Al-Tajer's arrest. Twenty "masked and armed (Bahraini) plainclothes men" stormed his house, ransacked it, arrested him, and detained him at an unknown location.

His wife and children were terrorized. His computers, cell phones, and documents were confiscated. His bank account was frozen. He was forced to turn over keys to his law office.

On June 12, he was brought before a military tribunal. His attorneys weren't informed. He had no legal representation. He was charged with inciting anti-government hatred, engaging in illegal protests, and instigating people to commit violence and harm security forces. He pled not guilty.
