Mushaima in Phone Call to His Son: Prisonís Treatment Got Worse Last Week

Bahrain Mirror: Ali Mushaima said that his father told him in a phone call on Tuesday that the prison's treatment got worse, explaining that this took place shortly after visiting the doctor in the prison's clinic.

Ali, who has been on hunger strike in front of the Bahraini Embassy in London since 11 days, said that the medics refused to give his father, who is diabetic, medication for his blood sugar yesterday.

The prison officers ended the call as soon as his father said too much about how he is being treated.

"Four weeks ago they told him that he needs to go and collect his medication with handcuffs and prison uniform, just for two minutes to walk to the clinic on the prison site," Ali said in a statement to a news website.

He considered that they only want to humiliate his father and said: "he's 70 years old, he's not going to run away."

Mushiama asked his supporters to write to their MPs urging them to contact the Foreign Office about his father, as well as sign and share a change.org petition that opened this week.
