Bahraini men who were wrongfully imprisoned must be released immediately!

The wrongful imprisonment of Bahraini citizens Mohammed Al-Sheikh and Mohammed Al-Oraibi are the latest cases of the Bahraini government's crackdown on human rights! The fact that these prisoners' families were denied information about their conditions and the reasons for their arrests for several days show that the Bahraini government has something to hide when it is confronted with questions about its human rights crisis! Al-Sheikh and Al-Oraibi were both denied access to lawyers as well, which is further proof that Bahrain's legal system is not based on any real justice! The clear evidence of torture and sexual assault that has been committed against these two men show yet again just how sadistic and power-hungry the Bahraini government is! To make matters even worse, the prisoners' houses have been broken into by unidentified criminals!
The Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR) also notes that the Bahraini government has cancelled an arranged visit from the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, originally scheduled for May 2013! All of the evidence shows that the Bahraini government is promoting human rights violations within its country, and cannot be trusted to handle its own human rights crisis! The international community must FORCE the Bahraini government to face justice for its actions, and prosecute anyone found guilty of a crime!
What is your response to this story?
