Bahrain Mirror - Exclusive: Ireland expressed deep concern over the travel ban imposed on activists in Bahrain, preventing them from coming to Geneva to take part in the ongoing UN Human Rights Council session.
In its intervention on Monday (May 1, 2017) during the 27th UPR session in Geneva on Bahrain's human rights record, Ireland called on Bahrain to "respect trade unions freedom, and that of peaceful assembly."
It also demanded Bahrain to stop pursuing citizens over their practice of rights, and to stop the pursuance of human rights defenders, stressing that a vital civil society plays an important role in protecting human rights.
