To mark the 90 days since Dr. Abdul Jalil Al-Singace hunger strike began, SAR Europe joined leading MPs, NGOs, Academics & lawyers in an open letter urging the UK government to call for his immediate and unconditional release.
Dr. Al-Singace is a Bahraini scholar and a retired professor of mechanical engineering at the University of Bahrain, sentenced to life in prison. After participating in a pro-democracy protest in March 2011, authorities arrested Dr. Al-Singace and he has been imprisoned ever since. Dr. Al-Singace was previously detained from August 2010 to February 2011 after delivering a speech on human rights. On July 8, 2021, Dr. Al-Singace began a hunger strike to protest his ill-treatment in Jau Prison and to demand the return of a book that was in his possession to his family.
