BCHR documents human rights violations post-BICI Report

(BCHR/IFEX) - 26 March 2012 - In its Post BICI Report released today, BCHR presents the main findings from the ongoing efforts to document human rights violations occurring in the state of Bahrain since the publication of the Report of the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) in November 2012. Our investigative report supports the rights of victims, no matter their political or religious background. It is unaffiliated with the Bahraini government or any foreign government and is firmly centered on domestic civil society advocacy of human rights.

This report is the second publication from the BCHR chronicling the events since February 14th 2011. The first, Bahrain: The Human Price of Freedom and Justice, was pivotal in addressing the widespread and systematic violations of human rights and international law.
