Day 250 of #SingaceHungerStrike—Will You Write?
Updated: Mar 12, 2022
Today marks day 250 of Abdul Jalil Al-Singace's hunger strike in protest of the torture and mistreatment of prisoners at Bahrain's Jau Prison, where he is currently serving a life sentence for charges related to his peaceful activism.
Both Endangered Scholars Worldwide and Scholars at Risk are gravely concerned over reports that Al-Singace, a professor of mechanical engineering and human rights activist, is suffering severe health complications, including respiratory and musculoskeletal issues and sickle cell disease, for which he is in need of urgent medical attention.
To observe this day, Scholars at Risk is reissuing a call for letters respectfully urging authorities to reconsider any convictions related to Al-Singace's peaceful exercise of free speech and association and to ensure his access to medical attention while in custody in accordance with international human rights standards.
Take action with SAR by signing a letter of appeal on behalf of Al-Singace and sharing this message with your networks.
