Routine Abuse, Routine Denial: Civil Rights and the Political Crisis in Bahrain
Human Rights Abuses in Bahrain are wide-ranging and fall into two basic categories. The first relates to law enforcement and administration of justice issues. These encompass the behavior of security forces toward those under arrest and detention, and when confronting civil disturbances, arbitrary detention, physical and psychological abuse of detainees, denial of access to legal counsel, and denial of the right to a swift and impartial judicial hearing.
