The UN panel, composed of 10 independent experts, asked Bahraini officials on Friday to “put an end to the solitary confinement” of the 52-year-old activist, who chairs the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, and "ensure that he is provided with adequate medical assistance and redress".

His solitary confinement “is reported to have exceeded nine months during which he has been denied adequate medical care,” the UN experts pointed out.

On December 22, 2016, Bahraini authorities accused Rajab of making comments that “harm the interests” of the Manama regime and other Persian Gulf kingdoms through an article attributed to him and published by French daily Le Monde.

The article slammed the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group for their crimes against humanity and Persian Gulf Arab countries for their failure to stop the spread of the violent Wahhabi ideology.
