  • Nabeel Rajab: 'Prison did not defeat me, I defeated prison'

    With over 300,000 Twitter followers, Bahraini rights defender Nabeel Rajab is undeniably a voice of influence in Bahrain and the MENA region. Unfortunately, his persistence in exposing state violations online has also led to several run-ins with the law, the most recent of which has landed him in solitary confinement and a five-year prison sentence. His sentence was upheld on 31 December 2018.
