Bahrain Mirror - Exclusive: Ghana demanded the government of Bahrain to end discrimination against the Shiite majority citizens.
In its intervention on Monday (May 1, 2017) during the 27th UPR session in Geneva on Bahrain's human rights record, Ghana said that although Bahrain accepted the recommendations of the UPR, yet it hasn't presented any compensations to victims of discrimination.
"We recommend Bahrain to abolish all kinds of discrimination, especially against the Shiite majority, ratify the Convention against Torture, adopt national preventive mechanism, and ratify the convention to protect individuals of arbitrary disappearance and convention on protecting refugees," Ghana went on to say.
