Release Nabeel Rajab

This petition had 99 supporters

Nabeel Rajab, is a brave Bahraini voice and human rights defender, who has been detained since June 2016. During this time, he spent 9 months in solitary confinement, this amounts to torture and ill-treatment. His next hearing is coming up and if convicted, Nabeel Rajab faces up to 15 years in jail just for tweeting.

One simple tweet can ruin someone's life. Expressing his opinons caused him to lose 9 months of his life and it could take away 15 years from his life that he could spend with his family , watching his kids grow. The Bahrani governement took away his right to express his opinon, the right to watch his family grow, the right of kids to have their father around. Not only did they breach the basic rights of humanity , they also tortured him physically and mentally beyond human comprehension.
