Bahrain Mirror: Juveniles in the Dry Dock Prison announced yesterday launching a hunger strike demanding their retrial according to the new Bahrain Child Protection Law.

Human rights activist Ibtisam Al-Saegh said via her social media account that the strike came "after a series of demands made by young prisoners and submitted by their parents before them to implement the Corrective Justice Law for Children (Law 4 of 2021) to commute the sentence or release the children. These demands were ignored by people concerned in this act."

"Their current demand is to start enacting this law so they can be retried pursuant to this law," she said.
