Bahrain Interfaith congratulates the human rights activist Nabeel Rajab, President of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, on the occasion of his release on Tuesday 9 June 2020, and congratulates his family, friends and colleagues working in the human rights community. Rajab’s release came within the Alternative Penal Code, where it remains on the 3-year ruling against him, and there are hopes that the provisions of this law will be improved and expanded.

The Center emphasizes that the release of Rajab is a positive step, and deserves celebration and appraisal, a position expressed by most activists in the country, and that the release of Rajab – with its national and human value – can be an opening “initiative” followed by broader and comprehensive initiatives.
