Arab Parliament condemns Amnesty International report as blatant, unacceptable interference

Cairo, Feb. 23 (BNA): The Arab Parliament (AP) has rejected the report issued by Amnesty International about the situation of human rights in Bahrain, saying that it was not based on facts or evidence and contained fallacies.


The report failed to rise to the standards of professionalism and objectivity and did not provide real evidence to back its erroneous and misleading accusations.


Its approach is in stark contrast with the basic principles adopted by the United Nations to monitor and document human rights situations, the AP added.


The AP stressed that the reference by Amnesty International to cases in which the courts of justice that are institutions known for their integrity and independence issued their final verdict is a blatant and unacceptable interference in Bahrain's judiciary and domestic affairs.


The Arab Parliament also stressed that Amnesty International ignored in its report the great human rights reforms Bahrain has achieved, as confirmed by the review reports issued by the United Nations Human Rights Council.


Amnesty International also disregarded Bahrain's membership on the Human Rights Council from 2019 to 2021, which refutes the false allegations and misleading claims in its report.
