Bahrain Mirror: Gulf analyst Bill Law criticized the ongoing policy of revoking the citizenships of Bahrainis, highlighting that the number of Bahrainis who have been stripped of their citizenship is now close to one thousand in a country with an indigenous population of 650,000.

"To put that figure into context, were the same policy applied to the UK, one million Britons would be made stateless," he said in an article published on the Gulf House for Studies and Publishing website.

Commenting on the legislative elections that recently took place in Bahrain, he stressed that behind it lies another truth: "You can find it within the walls of Jau Prison where thousands of regime opponents are detained. Among them are the human rights activists Nabeel Rajab and Abdulhadi Alkhawaja."
