Royal Torture: Bahrain princess charged with activist abuse

28 Jan 2013

Bahraini authorities are set for a new round of talks with the opposition later this week amid the continuing crackdown on anti-regime rallies across the nation. The Sunni monarchy has been widely accused by rights groups of using tear gas and torture against protesters. And as RT’s Aleksey Yaroshevsky reports even those who try and treat the injured demonstrators say they are being victimized.

Bahrain acquits police officers accused of torture

Updated: Monday, December 23, 1:08 PM

MANAMA, Bahrain — A lawyer says a Bahrain court has acquitted two police officers accused of torturing doctors who were detained while treating wounded Shiite protesters in 2011.

Lawyer Ali Al Juffairi says he attended Monday’s court session and that none of the six doctors or the two police officers were present when the verdict was read. The doctors were released from custody at different times over the past years.

Among the two acquitted was Noora bint Ibrahim Al Khalifa, a female police officer and member of Bahrain’s royal family.

The doctors were detained at the height of protests in Bahrain by Shiites demanding greater rights from the Sunni monarchy.

The case is the latest in a string of acquittals for security officers accused of using excessing force and abusing detainees in Bahrain.
