Associated Press reported on Thursday.
The issuance has now been delayed until November 23.
Thousands of pro-democracy protesters have been staging demonstrations in Bahrain since mid-February, demanding political reforms and a constitutional monarchy -- a demand that later changed to an outright call for the ouster of the ruling Al Khalifa regime after the crackdown on the popular protests.
According to local sources, scores of people have been killed and hundreds arrested during the suppressive campaign.
On March 14, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates invaded the country to assist the Bahraini government in its crackdown on the peaceful protesters.
The delay in the release of the report comes as a military court in Manama has sentenced 20 more people to six-month jail terms for protesting against the ruling family.
Last month, the court sentenced 20 medical professionals to between five and 15 years in jail for their having treated anti-regime protesters.
Physicians for Human Rights says doctors and nurses have been detained, tortured, or disappeared because they have "evidence of atrocities committed by the authorities, security forces and riot police" in the crackdown on anti-government protesters.
Nabeel Rajab, who directs the non-governmental Bahrain Center for Human Rights, has said that Manama has arrested as many as '1,000 political prisoners.'
