Al Khalifa forces extract coerced confession from Bahraini teenager

The teenager was interrogated at the Criminal Investigation Directorate for hours and was only released after signing the confession.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The LuaLua TV website has learned that members of Manama’s security apparatus tortured and ill-treated 15-year-old Ali Marhoun before forcing him to sign a confession saying that he was guilty of arson.

The teenager was interrogated at the Criminal Investigation Directorate for hours and was only released after signing the confession.

Last April, a Manama court placed the young Marhoun under observation by the security forces.

Minors in Bahrain are routinely taken into custody without cause or an arrest warrant. Many are subjected to torture and other forms of ill-treatment.
