Bahrain Mirror: Detainee Hussein Al-Sehlawi is suffering from "persecution" as he is denied his right to treatment, human rights activist Ibtisam Al-Saegh said. She added that he is not allowed to contact prisoners and is held in solitary confinement.

Al-Sehlawi's mother said that her son suffers from ill-treatment, restrictions, isolation and intimidation, Al-Saegh reported.

The authorities attacked prisoners in building 13 after they protested against water cut off and number of other restrictive measures. Thus, the prison administration transferred 5 of the detainees to solitary confinement, including Al-Sehlawhi, as a punishment.

Bahrain's prison administration is taking retaliatory steps against political prisoners aiming at humiliating them, while there is no serious mechanism by the king's appointed judicial authorities to hold perpetrators accountable.
