A statement Saturday from the Ministry of State for Communications said the teacher published articles about Bahrain that “were deemed to incite hatred against the government and members of the royal family.”
The ministry said the woman, whom it did not identify, also violated the terms of her work permit by working illegally as an unaccredited journalist. The ministry said she also wrote for the Bahrain Center for Human Rights.
Aug 11 (Reuters) – Bahrain has deported a U.S. nursery school teacher it says wrote articles on social media sites linked to radical groups and for violating the terms of her work permit as the kingdom intensifies its crackdown on dissent: here.
This is a photo of Ms Erin Kilbride, the teacher deported by the Bahraini absolute monarchy.
Ms Kilbride holds a Bachelor’s degree in Women and Gender Studies and Arabic Language from Georgetown University, and attended the University of Jordan in Amman.
She was also planning to pursue masters in Human Rights at the London School of Economics this year, according to her biography in Muftah.
Before joining the school in Riffa in Bahrain, Ms Kilbride was employed by the US Department of State to work at the Uganda Foreign Service.
