Bahrain: Drop All Charges Against Ibrahim Karimi (UA 215/15)

Ibrahim Karimi has been sentenced to two years and one month in prison on charges including “publicly insulting the King” which he has denied. He is a prisoner of conscience. He will be at immediate risk of expulsion after he completes his sentence as his nationality was arbitrarily revoked.
1) Please write immediately in English, Arabic or your own language:
  • Urging the authorities to drop all charges against Ibrahim Karimi that arise from his peaceful exercise of the right to freedom of expression;
  • Urging them to investigate his allegations of torture and other ill-treatment promptly, and protect him from further such ill-treatment;
  • Calling on them to rescind the decision to strip Ibrahim Karimi of his nationality, and not to proceed with his expulsion.
