Jaw Prison's detainee punished for observing Shiite religious occasion

According to online activists, the measures are a form of punishment against al-Mutawa following his decision to observe a Shiite religious occasion last month.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - A detainee at Bahrain’s Jaw Prison Issa al-Mutawa is unable to purchase basic goods sold at the facility for a two-month period.

According to online activists, the measures are a form of punishment against al-Mutawa following his decision to observe a Shiite religious occasion last month.

Recent years have seen authorities at Jaw step-up their harassment of the prison population, abusing those who choose to practice Shiite religious rituals.

Political prisoners in Jaw are also routinely denied access to desperately needed medical care and are punished for complaining or speaking out against the cruel practices.

In September of last year, over 1,000 Bahraini prisoners launched a hunger strike in protest of the living conditions and abuses in detention.
