Bahrain Mirror: Amnesty International called on the Bahraini authorities to provide the immediate and needed health care to prisoner of conscience Hajar Masnour and ensure her a fail trial.

Director of the Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy (BIRD) Sayed Ahmed Al-Wadaei said that Isa Town prison administration is stalling in providing treatment and urgent medical tests to his mother-in-law Hajar Mansour, indicating that this is taking place with the complicity of the National Institution for Human rights and Ombudsman.

He said via a tweet that Hajar is waiting for an urgent test after she discovered a lump, stating that the lump might be cancerous.

The administration of Isa Town prison has earlier prevented Mansour from being transferred to the hospital, despite her deteriorating health condition, without putting chains in her hands. Female prisoners of conscience had launched a hunger strike more than once in protest against the harassment practiced against them.
