Bahrain Mirror: The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad, stressed that Bahrain needs "profound reforms", deeming the revocation of the citizenships of dissents a "practice of concern".

In an address he delivered during the 31st session of the Human Rights Council on Thursday (March 10, 2016) in Geneva, the high commissioner added that the Bahraini government "continues to silence political opponents, journalists and human rights defenders by arrests, revocation of citizenship and deportation."

Prince Zeid Ra'ad Zeid Al-Hussein further expressed his concern regarding human rights violations in Bahrain, stressing that "if past human rights violations are not adequately addressed, grievances and other issues at the root of the past conflicts will continue to fester."
