EU, rights groups urge Bahrain to end crackdown on dissidents

 

 

The EU and the 35-member UN Human Rights Council have urged Bahrain to end its heavy-handed crackdown on political dissent.

Slovakia’s permanent representative to the UN office in Geneva Fedor Rosocha, whose country holds the rotating EU presidency, voiced concerns “about measures against Bahrain’s opposition political society.”

Rosocha read a statement to a UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) session on Wednesday, saying the EU is troubled by the “revocation of nationality of Bahraini citizens.

The UN human rights council also condemned the Bahraini regime’s crackdown on dissent, calling for comprehensive reforms to bring stability to the Persian Gulf kingdom.
