How You Can Help

On July 28, 2015, Ebrahim Sharif was brought to the Public Prosecution for interrogation with his lawyer present. His lawyer asked for him to be released on bail, but the prosecution rejected this and ordered that he be detained for a further 15 days. He is held in al-Hala police station in al-Muharraq governorate, north of the capital, Manama. He is a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression.

On July 31st, Amnesty International released this statement and urgent call to action.

As mentioned in their link, they urge you to send immediate appeals calling on the Bahraini authorities to release Ebrahim Sharif immediately and unconditionally and urging them to uphold the right to freedom of expression before September 11 2015 to the following Bahraini government officials:

– King Hamad Bin Issa Al Khalifa (address in link)

– Minister of Interior Shaikh Rashid Bin Abdullah Al Khalifa (address in link)

– Minister of Justice and Islamic Affairs Shaikh Khalid Bin Ali Bin Abdullah al Khalifa (Twitter: @Khaled_Bin_Ali)
