Bahrain Mirror: Front Line Defenders expressed "strong concern" for the rearrest and ongoing harassment of the president of Bahrain Center for Human Rights Nabeel Rajab, calling for immediately releasing him and dropping the charges outstanding against him.

The organization also condemned preventing human rights defenders, Hussain Radhi, Ebtisam Al-Saegh and Ibrahim Al-Demistani from travelling to Geneva to participate in UNHRC session.

Front Line Defenders believes that the ongoing proceedings against Nabeel Rajab and the travel bans imposed against the three human rights defenders are solely motivated by the their peaceful and legitimate activities in the defence of human rights.

The organization urged to lift the travel ban against human rights defenders and "guarantee in all circumstances that all human rights defenders in Bahrain are able to carry out their legitimate human rights activities, nationally and internationally, without fear of reprisals and free of all restrictions including judicial harassment."
