Bahrain tries brain death activist

TEHRAN, Oct. 2 (MNA) – Bahraini judiciary system has set October 8th as trial day of Yousef al-Namshi, 31, who is near brain dead conditions.

Mehr News quoted Al-Alam News Network interview with Zeinab Abdul Aziz who told that Bahraini Attorney General accused al-Namshi of spreading unrest and kept him in custody for 45 days.

Neglect of al-Namshi’s health in Bahraini prison has brought him to the brink of brain dead conditions, and officials delivered him to the court rather than to treat him. Prison doctor said that al-Namshi suffers from a brain tumor and severe inflammation, very similar to brain death condition.

Bahrain Center of Human rights has expressed concerns over unfounded arrests, recording confessions under coercion, and depriving prisoners from their rights to treatment.

Yousef Ali Abdullah Yaghubi al-Namshi was arrested in August 17 2013 with the allegation of rebellion against the regime and inciting the public, and he was severely beaten by the security forces in prison.
