Bahrain Mirror: Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society stressed on to the necessity to release female Bahraini prisoners who were arrested over their opinions.

Al-Wefaq stressed that the policy of targeting women in Bahrain is an official policy used by the regime to pressure the popular movement that demands justice, democracy and building a country based on citizenship.

It highlighted that there are hundreds of  imprisoned Bahraini women and that a large number of them were tortured and prosecuted over malicious charges related to their relations with peaceful popular movement or aimed at pressuring dissidents or their spouses, children or parents.

The organization said that Bahraini women on all levels have been arrested. Business Women, doctors, lawyers, nurses, teachers, activists, unemployed women and housewives were all interrogated, arrested, banned from traveling and persecuted.

It further stated that a number of detainees documented cases of unethical violations during and after being interrogated in different security apparatuses.

Al-Wefaq called for the need to release all prisoners and stop using pressure on Bahraini women. It also confirmed that the regime had assaulted children, women, elderly people, clerics, professionals, technocrats and civil society organizations and didn't spare anyone, in order to besiege peaceful activism demanding democracy, which cannot be achieved by force and intimidation. The solution lies in answering the demands of the people and building a state of citizenship, justice and political partnership.
