‘Son in depression after torture in Bahrain jail’

Haitham Habib Ali, the Omani citizen arrested in Bahrain following the protests that hit the country, is suffering from severe depression after being tortured by police, his father has alleged.

“I noticed injury marks on my son’s arms and back when I visited him on Tuesday,” Haitham’s father Habib Ali told Muscat Daily by telephone from Manama, Bahrain, on Friday. Haitham, who was arrested on May 4 in Bani Jamra, on the outskirts of Manama, is also said to have told his father that the police tortured him every day, particularly before meals. “He also said he was taken to an unknown place and beaten up by unidentified people,” Ali said.

“Unfortunately, we had no privacy when we visited Haitham as the families of all the detainees had gathered to meet them in the same room.”Ali was earlier hopeful of securing his son’s release through a trial, which was scheduled for July 14 but later cancelled. “After the trial was cancelled and after talks in Bahrain came to a dead end, we have lost all hope of his release.”

Ali said that his attempts to have a meeting with the Omani Ambassador in Bahrain have also been unsuccessful.

“The Omani Embassy in Bahrain tried to contact me, but the call got disconnected for some reason,” said Ali. His family is now trying to appoint a lawyer to defend Haitham, who his father said called home on Friday and spoke to his mother. “From his voice, my wife could make out that he is not in good health.”The Bahraini authorities have given the family permission to meet Haitham this Tuesday.

    JORDAN: MPs passed a law on Sunday allowing teachers to form the country’s first teachers’ union, meeting a demand of civil rights activists.

    The government had been reluctant to license the union but bowed to pressure after months of street protests.

    King Abdullah II is expected to endorse the law for the new union, which will be led by an elected board.
