Bahrain Mirror: Sumaya Rajab, wife of prominent human rights defender Nabeel Rajab, said that her detained husband is still being subjected to psychosocial pressure by isolating him from the outside world, stressing that his health has been continuously deteriorating.
"Rajab's weight is rapidly decreasing, he has lost 8 Kgs in 2 weeks only," said Sumaya in a series of tweets on her personal Twitter account.
"The health of the human rights defender is deteriorating; he suffers from heart, gallbladder and blood pressure problems. He is losing weight rapidly. The authorities are still holding him in isolation," she explained.
Rajab's wife reiterated her call to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and Human Rights commissioner for Human Rights Zeid bin Ra'ad Al-Hussein and all "countries that respect human rights" to interfere and save Rajab, holding the Bahraini government accountable for Rajab's health deterioration. "I will not stop appealing to the world until Nabeel returns to his family," she further stated.
