Target: HM King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa
Region: Bahrain

Petition Background (Preamble):

Three medical workers are currently in prison in Bahrain following the uprising in early 2011. They are Mr Ahmed Almushatat (a pharmacist), Mr Hassan Matooq (a nurse) and Mr Younis Ashoori (a hospital administrator). All were convicted at military trials and are reported to have been subjected to torture.

There are particular grave concerns over the health of Younis Ashoori, age 60, who suffers from a number of medical conditions and deteriorating health.

'Doctors In Chains' received this testimony from a family member following a recent court hearing where he spoke of his treatment in prison:

'Younis also said that as a result of torture, once he started urinating blood, he was taken to the BDF (Bahrain Defense Force) military hospital. The Doctor there asked him: “Where does it hurt you the most?” Younis replied: “My kidney”. Then the Doctor punched him on the kidney. Everybody in the courtroom was disturbed when they heard this'

Please help promote this petition and free these three good men who do not deserve to spend a single day more in prison.


We, the undersigned, call on HM King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa, to release the three medical workers currently detained in prison in Bahrain:

Mr Ahmed Almushatat

Mr Hassan Matooq

Mr Younis Ashoori
