Bahrain not to transfer jailed activist
Bahrain has rejected a request to transfer to Denmark a jailed Shia activist who has been on hunger strike for two months and also holds Danish nationality, the state-run Bahrain News Agency has reported.
“The handover of accused and convicted persons to foreign countries takes place under specific conditions … This does not apply in Abdulhadi al-Khawaja’s case,” a Supreme Judiciary Council official said, quoted by BNA on Sunday.
The statement did not gave any further details.
At least the Danes are trying to look out for their citizens imprisoned by dictatorships abroad.
That’s more than the USA has done or is doing for Joe Gordon.
