The UN raised the alarm today over the lengthy prison sentences meted out to medical staff in Bahrain who treated those injured in the Saudi-backed crackdown on civil rights protests in March.
A broad coalition of members of the European Parliament, on initiative of Marietje Schaake (from the political party D66, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats of Europe, ALDE) requested in an urgent letter to EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, to put pressure on the government of Bahrain to release immediately a group of 20 convicted Bahraini doctors and nurses. Yesterday, a military court in Bahrain announced the sentences in which 13 doctors and nurses were sentenced to 15 years jail terms, while the remaining seven were given prison sentences of 10 years. The ‘crime’ was only to provide medical assistance to injured protesters during the recent uprisings in the Gulf State: here.
