Bahrain human rights violations investigation

This August 2011 video about Bahrain says about itself:

Open Letter to Bassiouni

Letters between Nabeel Rajab and Cherif Bassiouni: here.

In November 2011, the Bassiouni commission, established by the king of Bahrain, published a report, admitting there was torture and other grave human rights violations in Bahrain. It also refuted Bahraini regime propaganda that the Bahraini pro-democracy movement were supposedly tools of the government of Iran.
