Bahrain: Al Tajer

On 15 April 2011, a group of more than 20 masked and armed plain-clothes men, belonging to security forces, entered the house where Mr. Mohamed Issa Al Tajer was present with his wife and young children. After thoroughly searching his house and office and taking computers and mobile phones, the men arrested Mr. Al Tajer and took him to an unknown destination.

Reports suggest that the Bahrainian authorities are attempting to put pressure on those who provide legal and medical assistance to protesters. Further, the information received suggests that about 600 people, including human rights defenders, political leaders, trade unionists, doctors and paramedics and clerics have been arrested since February 2011.
