Hundreds of inmates at the Jau Reform and Rehabilitation Center have ended their monthlong hunger strike in Bahrain after the government fulfilled the promised changes, state news agency BNA reported.
In a statement, the National Institution of Human Rights (NIHR) said the prisoners ended their hunger strike after the authorities extended visiting hours, increased hours inmates have access to daylight, increased phone access, and improved healthcare services at the prison.
The NIHR acknowledged that “other services needed some time to process or legislative action.”
Comments from the prisoners about the improved health services “were documented by the team and will be presented to the relevant authorities in Government hospitals,” the NIHR statement added.
The institution said it will follow up on all matters related to the rights of inmates and pledged to consider all their demands “to ensure that they enjoy their rights stipulated in national legislation and relevant international standards.”
