Urgent Action Update: Forcibly Disappeared Bahraini Faces Military Trial (Bahrain: UA 30.17)


On 9 May, Fadhel Sayed Abbas Hasan Radhi’s case has been transferred to a military court. Neither his family nor lawyer have been informed of the charges. Fadhel Sayed has been subjected to enforced disappearance since his arrest in September 2016, and since then remains at risk of torture and other ill treatment.

Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Urging the Bahraini authorities to immediately disclose the fate and whereabouts of Fadhel Sayed Abbas Hasan Radhi as well as the legal basis for his detention and provide him with prompt and regular access to his family, lawyer and any medical attention and ensure that he is protected from torture and other ill-treatment;
  • Urging the Bahraini authorities to charge Fadhel Sayed Abbas Hasan Radhi with a recognizable criminal offense, or release him;
  • If he is charged with a recognizable criminal offense, urging them to transfer his case to a civilian court that complies with international fair trial standards, excluding evidence obtained under torture and not resorting to the death penalty.
