A Voice Recording Exposes the Threat of the Security Men to the Families of the Wanted in Security Cases
11 August 2010
The Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights expresses its deep concern after receiving a voice recording – the BYSHR owns a copy of it – that proves that the Bahraini Security Forces have a permit to damage and destroy the houses of those wanted by the security apparatuses. The recording shows that the First Lieutenant in the Criminal Investigations is threatening a family from Karzakan area with constantly breaking into the house and damaging and destroying it, if their sons continue to flee and not turn themselves in to the security apparatuses. The Lieutenant stressed that he has orders to terrorize the families until his demands are obeyed.
Information indicates that the First Lieutenant Mohammed Al-Saeedi – Criminal Investigations – broke into a house in Karzakan last Sunday, 1 August 2010 at 4 am in the morning, and the mother of those wanted was at home while their father was outside. The Security Forces used vulgar language, as well as destroying the contents of the house.
Information also confirms that the Security Forces also destroyed a house in the area of Karzakan, where the Security Forces broke into the house in search for the wanted and then it turned out that the owner of the house was not at home, and this house is considered unfit for living, and the Security Forces destroyed and damaged its contents.
