Al-Singace, a professor of mechanical engineering, is serving a life sentence at Bahrain's notoriously brutal Jau Prison for his role in the country’s 2011 uprising. He was accused of attempting to overthrow the government, but his charges are in reality related to his peaceful human rights and political activism.
