Crowds storm inquiry office amid reports of whitewash
Tuesday 16 August 2011
Hundreds of people stormed the Manama offices of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) on Monday night.
Angry protesters apparently attacked staff in the offices amid reports that the BICI was poised to let government officials off the hook for the clampdown.
The offices were shut today but the commission insisted in a statement that it had yet to arrive at any conclusions and that work would continue.
There had been “misleading headlines in recent news articles claiming that the commission has determined that the government of Bahrain committed no crimes against humanity,” the BICI stated.
At least 32 people have been killed in the ensuing crackdown and there are currently over 1,000 political prisoners detained in the US-allied kingdom, including doctors who had been seized after treating wounded activists, according to rights groups.

Egyptian Workers Labor on an Unfinished Revolution. Ari Paul, The Indypendent: “For 26 years, Mohammed Gharib Abdullah has been proud to be a mechanic at the Timsah Shipbuilding Company on the Suez Canal, a symbol of Egyptian economic and engineering might. He works in Ismailia, a desert city of 750,000 inhabitants near the midpoint of the 101-mile-long-canal that links the Mediterranean and Gulf of Suez. In early July, however, Abdullah stood outside the gates of his idled factory. He and 8,500 other ship and port infrastructure builders were on strike, claiming that a crony of ousted President Hosni Mubarak reneged on a wage increase they won a few months ago. ‘Most of the laborers love their work,’ he said. ‘All that we dream of is to live at a basic level of dignity’”: here.
