Bahraini human rights activist Zainab Khawaja was was recently released for prison has left her country for Denmark, citing fears of indefinite jail term.

In a series of tweets, Khawaja said e left Bahrain with two children to Denmark, where she has citizenship.

She said the Al Khalifah regime was preparing to file new charges against her, which would have made her detention “indefinite.”

“The regime that thinks exile means moving us away from our land should know, we carry Bahrain in our hearts wherever we go,” she wrote on her Twitter account.

Bahraini regime forces raided her apartment in the capital, Manama, on March 14, taking her and her baby Abdulhadi into custody.

She was held in detention along with her son, and was denied requests to pass her child to her husband. She faced three years in prison on a number of charges, including tearing up pictures of Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

In late May, however, she was released based on “humanitarian” grounds.

Zainab Khawaja is the daughter of leading human rights activist Abdulhadi Khawaja, who is serving a life sentence in connection to his influential role in the 2011 pro-democracy protests against the Al Khalifa regime.
