Bahrain Mirror: Family of kidnapped and forcibly disappeared Sayed Alawi said that the authorities are still concealing him since 66 days.

In a statement on (December 28, 2016), the family talked about what it called "blackout by the official authorities on Sayed Alawi's disappearance," indicating that they did not receive any information about the charges brought against Alawi or his detention place.

They continued "for the 66th consecutive day, Sayed Alawi hasn't met his lawyer or family. He wasn't even allowed to call his family but for few minutes. No one knows they reason behind his disappearance, the charges brought against him or anything about his wellbeing."

"All the official parties that we contacted within the past 66 days like the prosecution, National Institution for Human Rights (NIHR) and Ombudsman are avoiding to tell us anything about Sayed Alawi. They sometimes avoid our calls too," the family further stated.

They added "the investigating office is refusing to meet us and not allowing Sayed Alawi to call his family. The office is not giving any information to any reference; whether his family or lawyer's office."

"These information make us sure that Sayed Alawi is being subjected to torture and pressure to extract confessions over a charge no one knows about but Allah," they went on to say.

The family concluded the statement demanding the official parties to immediately release Sayed Alawi, bearing the Ombudsman and NIHR responsible for his safety and wellbeing.
