Washington, DC – Human Rights First is concerned for the safety of Bahraini teacher Jaleela Al Salman, who was rearrested in a night raid conducted early this morning. She is Vice President of the Bahrain Teachers Association and reports indicate that she was seized by masked men who entered her home around 3 a.m. The security forces who took her did not show a warrant for her arrest.
On September 25, Al Salman was sentenced to three years in prison. She was convicted following an unfair military court trial and was at home while she waited for her appeal, currently scheduled for December 11. It is understood that neither Al Salman nor her lawyer received an official notice prior to her arrest. She was taken to Isa Town police station and is expected to be transferred to jail today.
