Calls for letters on behalf of Dr. Abdul Jalil Al-Singace of Bahrain

April 29, 2015

ESW is gravely concerned over recent reports that Dr. Abdul Jalil Al-Singace, a professor of mechanical engineering who is currently imprisoned in Bahrain, is in deteriorating health. Especially concerning are reports that Dr. Al-Singace is currently undertaking a hunger strike in protest of the alleged degrading and ill treatment of prisoners of conscience - including himself - in Bahrain. 

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. Learn more about Dr. Al-Singace and write a letter on his behalf today.
