12 : 27 AM - 13/05/2011
Manama, May 12 (BNA) The Ministry of Interior today denied media allegations broadcasted by Al Jazeera English against the Kingdom of Bahrain. Ministry Spokesman Brigadier Tariq Al Hassan in a telephone conversation with Bahrain Television affirmed that what was included in the report was untrue and baseless. He added that the ministry denied all such malicious fabrication made by Al Jazeera English. The report he said showed an interview of Heba, a reportedly 16-year-old schoolgirl, claiming that she, along with three of her school friends, were taken away by the police from their school and subjected to severe beatings while in custody for three consecutive days.

Brigadier Al Hassan stated that the person who had prepared the report did not confirm his information from official bodies and failed to undertake the professional methods adopted to ensure credibility in presenting the information. He also affirmed that the ministry was committed to its responsibilities dictated by the constitution and its legal system in preserving security and public order.
