The Deputy Chairman at the European-Bahraini Organization for Human Rights (EBOHR) Fatima al-Halwachi described the deteriorating living conditions in Bahrain’s Jaw Prison after visiting her father over the weekend.

Fatima tweeted on Sunday that the lack of hygiene is particularly concerning, with prisoners unable to shower for days at a time.

“My father tells me the water is always weak and finishes and when it is available it is very cold,” she said in a post on Twitter.

“Food in Jaw Prison is really poor and unclean,” she added. “They found insects, stones … and even coins baked in the bread!!”

The young activist explains that the food is often brought to the prisoners in “Clorox bottles” – a very powerful household cleaning product.

Fatima’s father, Khalil al-Halwachi, is a Bahraini scholar and activist, who is serving a 10-year prison sentence on weapons possession charges.

Last month the US-based international network Scholars at Risk (SAR) called for his release, describing the charges an act of “retaliation for his nonviolent expressive and associative activity.”
