Bahrain Mirror (Exclusive): English PEN said it is increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of prominent Bahraini academic, activist and blogger Dr. Abduljalil Al-Singace.

"Dr. Al-Singace, who is serving a life sentence for his peaceful opposition activities, began his hunger strike on March 21, 2015 in protest against the deprivation of basic rights and ill-treatment of prisoners in Jaw prison," the organization added in a statement issued on Saturday, June 27, 2015.

English PEN called on its supporters and advocates to join the solidarity campaign organized by Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR), the Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) and Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain (ADHRB) to mark the 100th day of Dr. Al-Singace's hunger strike.
