ESW is gravely concerned over recent reports that Abdul Jalil Al-Singace, a professor of mechanical engineering currently imprisoned in Bahrain, is in deteriorating health. According to reports, Al-Singace is currently undertaking a hunger strike to protest the alleged degrading mistreatment of prisoners of conscience, including himself. Such an action could have a terrible effect on Al-Singace's already fragile health.
ESW calls for letters, emails, and faxes respectfully urging authorities to reconsider any convictions related to this scholar's peaceful exercise of free speech and association and to ensure his well-being and access to medical attention while in custody in accordance with international human rights standards.
