Bahrain Mirror: Bahraini Ministry of Interior took retaliatory measure against imprisoned journalist Mahmoud Al-Jaziri on (April 8, 2020) and transferred him to solitary confinement.

It seems that the ministry took this retaliatory measure after Al-Jaziri revealed in an audio recording from inside prison that the National Institute for Human Rights statement regarding the conditions of prisons in Bahrain is "merely a play that has nothing to do with reality".

Journalist Mahmoud Al-Jaziri, who is sentenced to 15 years in prison over political charges, said that he watched the report aired on television from inside the prison and listened to the NIHR report, and stressed that the report is completely false and is a play that has nothing to do with the reality of the situation.

The report displayed the most recent building in the prison which was opened about a week ago, Al-Jaziri added, noting that only a few number of prisoners were transferred to that building, while prisoners are piled up in the old building, like building number 1 and 4 or in the tightly sealed or non-ventilated ones like building number 12, 13 and 14.

In Bahrain, there are fears of an outbreak of the Coronavirus epidemic inside Jaw Prison due to lack of health care in prisons.
