According to a statement released by the rights group on Tuesday, Fadhel Radhi was transferred to military court after being detained and held in incommunicado since September 2016.

“This is a shameful move by the authorities designed to strike fear in the heart of the population. It is also a serious blow for justice in Bahrain. Military trials in Bahrain are flagrantly unfair. And trying civilians before military courts is contrary to international standards,” said Amnesty International’s Beirut regional office Campaigns Director Samah Hadid.

“The decision to transfer Fadhel Sayed Abbas Hasan Radhi to the military court must immediately be quashed. He must be given immediate access to proper legal representation, informed of the charges against him, and tried in a civilian court, according to international fair trial standards,” she added.

Amnesty noted that repeated requests for information about Radhi's location and condition have been left unanswered since his disappearance last year.

On March 5, Bahrain approved the trial of civilians at military tribunals in a measure blasted by human rights campaigners as being tantamount to imposition of an undeclared martial law countrywide.
