Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain Press Association (BPA) condemned transferring imprisoned journalist Mahmoud Al-Jaziri to solitary confinement for reporting on conditions inside Bahraini prisons and lack of real precautionary measures to confront Coronavirus, and held the National Institution for Human Rights (NIHR) responsible.

In a statement it published on the Internet on Saturday (April 11, 2020), BPA called on the NIHR to pressure in order to release Al-Jaziri from the solitary confinement and to perform its duties "impartially and professionally".

The association demanded the release of Al-Jaziri and all prisoners "as a precautionary step to face the Coronavirus outbreak."
