The Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK type-O-negatived the Home Office (HO) very seriously for its training of the Security Services of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Thus participating into the capture, torture and killing of people attempting to practice their right of free consciousness, expression and association.
I guess that the HO is in desperate need for cash. And the nearly £1800 of which it robbed me in return for the promise that in a years time, and under the condition that I deliver more cash, it may, or may not, give me what according to the regulations I should already have been given; I was saying that the money stolen from me (and probably from many more little, harmless, speechles speople) under the pretext of document issuing did not suffice the HO and it went selling its now-how and expertise in perfidiy to Bahrain. This on British Budget.
To be honest I, as a taxpayer, when hearing 'Foreign Aid' as a strand of the budget, don't imagine the government sponsoring the HO to train the security services of a non-democratic monarchy in the Middle East in efficiency in capturing, torturing, killing and striping of nationality its citizens.
While it turns out that it is precisely this.
More on the subject and the excellent young people on the panel of The Crackdown on Human Rights and Freedoms in Bahrain will be coming soon.
For now I want to mention two names:
Sayed Aleadaei, a young activist from Bahrain’s Institute for Rights and Democracy. Many of his family members are held in Bahraini prison at the moment. Sayed was stripped from nationality because of his energetic campaigning for his father’s right of medical treatment while in prison. Sayed has an asylum status in the UK.
Olivia Rosenstrom, a young barrister and winner of The Human Rights Lawyers’ Association Bursary Award, amongst others; who has worked hard to prepare a serious HO type-O-negativing file. Each brilliant in their own way.
