The Human Rights Committee at the Shura Council has denounced the false and based allegations cited in the report issued by Amnesty International regarding the human rights situation in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The report lacked integrity, objectivity and credibility, as it was not based on the correct facts and information that reflect Bahrain’s democratic and human rights reality, based on the foundations and principles of human rights that were launched and spearheaded by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the committee said in a statement issued today.
In this regard, the panel stressed that Amnesty International’s statement had been misleading, as it contained incorrect allegations against the Kingdom, and did neither adhere to professionalism nor to objectivity in conveying the human rights reality in the country.
The Shura committee noted that Amnesty International had relied, as usual, on information from unreliable sources, and failed to contact the relevant official authorities to obtain correct and documented information about the human rights situation in the Kingdom.
The committee expressed, marking the 20th anniversary of the overwhelming endorsement of the National Action Charter by the loyal Bahraini people, its deep pride in the progress and prosperity achieved by Bahrain across the political, economic, human rights and cultural levels.
