Bahrain Mirror: Psychologist Sharifa Siwar announced on Friday, December 31, 2021, from London, that she had left Bahrain to seek asylum in Britain.

Siwar accused the king's son, Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, of being involved in promoting and selling drugs, particularly Lyrica pills, in girls' schools in Bahrain.

Siwar began executing her sentence in October 2020 and was released in May 2021. She said during a seminar in the UK Capital that the Public Prosecution had appealed against her, and the authorities want send her back to prison, that's why she decided to leave Bahrain and seek asylum abroad.

She spoke about how she was prosecuted, monitored and harassed during the last period.

It is worth mentioning that "Bahrain Mirror" published two detailed reports on all the facts of the Lyrica case which Sharifa Siwar disclosed in 2019.
