A Message from Behind Bars in Bahrain
Three medics currently jailed in Bahrain, Ibrahim Aldemestani, Dr. Ali Al-Ekri, and Hassan Salman Al-Maatouq, wrote this letter calling on the world to recognize their unjust imprisonment for upholding principles of medical neutrality. They call attention to unsanitary conditions of imprisonment and urge medics worldwide to abide by medical ethics. They end the letter by announcing their intention to form an independent body of Medics for Human Rights in Bahrain. The full handwritten letter can be found here.
