Amnesty urges Bahrain regime to lift travel ban on ailing former lawmaker
Tehran (KNA) - Amnesty International has called on Bahraini officials to put an end to their continued harassment of former legislator Osama Jaber Muhana al-Tamimi, and to allow him to travel abroad for medical treatment after he suffered a stroke following his arrest last month.
The London-based rights group said on Twitter Tuesday that al-Tamimi had a stroke on August 6, and was taken to Salmaniya Medical Complex.
He was released by the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) five days later. In the early hours of August 16, he attempted to leave Bahrain to Oman with his family.
