Bahrain Mirror-Exclusive: The Gulf Center for Human Rights (GCHR) asked his supporters in a statement published in Global Voice to tweet calling on authorities in Bahrain to "immediately and unconditionally free Ibtisam Al-Saegh, allow her unhindered access to medical care while she remains in detention, allow her proper meetings with her family and lawyer; and guarantee in all circumstances that human rights defenders in Bahrain are able to carry out their legitimate activities without fear of reprisals and free of all restrictions including judicial harassment."
The Bahraini authorities charged human rights activist Ibtisam Al-Saegh under Bahrain's terrorism law. Bahrain's public prosecutor ordered her arrest for six months pending investigation, and accused her of "using human rights work as a cover to communicate and cooperate with Geneva-based human rights group, Al-Karama Foundation."
