Bahrain Mirror (Exclusive): Coronavirus cases increased in Jaw Central Prison on Sunday to 49.
Families of 49 detainees confirmed the infection of their sons in Jaw prison, where most of the political prisoners serve lengthy prison terms.
Meanwhile, General Directorate of Reformation and Rehabilitation in Jaw Prison confirmed the infection of a number of prisoners, and so did the Ombudsman. However, they didn't announce the number of infected cases or the measures followed in isolating that infected and those in contact with them.
In his comment on the recent statements issued by the General Directorate of Reformation and Rehabilitation and Ombudsman, Baqer Darwish, President of Bahrain Forum for Human Rights, said that the recent request of the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture to visit Bahrain has not been met yet, thus, everything issued by official parties on prisons' situation can't be trusted.
Baqer said that the statements issued the General Directorate of Reformation and Rehabilitation and Ombudsman lack transparency, wondering about the reason of not publishing the number of infected cases and health details of some inmates who suffer chronic diseases.
On Sunday (March 28, 2021), a number of detainees' families protested in front of the Ombudsman building in Manama to express their concern at their sons in prison, amid the rapid outbreak of Coronavirus.
However, a number of Ministry of Interior members- policemen and intelligence members- registered the names of protestors and prevented them from protesting, under the claim that law prevents protesting in Manama.
