Bahraini activist welcomes release of ailing detainee Sayed Kadhem Abbas

Bahraini rights campaigner Ebtisam Al-Saegh welcomed Manama’s decision to free ailing detainee Sayed Kadhem Abbas on humanitarian grounds.

Earlier this month, Abbas had undergone surgery for a brain tumor following repeated allegations that prison authorities were denying him proper medical treatment.

Al-Saegh, who made numerous appeals for Abbas’ release, expressed hope that other gravely ill Bahraini prisoners will also be released.

In addition, the activist demanded that all those hindering the detainees’ access to health care be held to account.
