Bahrain Mirror: Bahraini security authorities summoned, former Wa'ad Society Secretary-General, Radi Al-Mousawi for interrogation on Tuesday.
The reasons for the summons sent to Al-Mousawi on Monday (September 11, 2017) were not clarified, but it is believed that he will be charged with "illegal assembly", as the rest of the activists, in order to justify the travel ban imposed on him.
The authorities had banned Al-Mousawi from leaving the country two weeks ago without revealing any reasons of the decision.
The authorities in Bahrain penalize activists with travel bans, so they would not be able to participate in international events, especially the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC)sessions held in Geneva.
During the opening of the UNHRC 36th session on Monday, the High Commissioner for Human Rights Prince Zeid bin Ra'ad Al Hussein criticized the Bahraini authorities' severe restrictions imposed on civil society and political activism through arrests, intimidation and travel bans.
