Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini security authorities prevented on Monday (September 18, 2017) Sayed Sharaf Al-Mosawi, the chairman of the Bahrain Transparency Society from leaving the country. The authorities also summoned Bahrain Center for Human Rights member, activist Nidal Al-Salman for interrogation tomorrow.
The authorities interrogated activist Ahmad Al-Saffar and activist Enas Oun, charged them with assembly and told them they are banned from traveling.
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 (September 11, 2017), 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.
