Bahrain Mirror: Information circulated on Sunday (March 19, 2017) revealed that Jaw Prison authorities are preventing detainees from performing prayers or their religious rituals in a widespread campaign launched since January, after the authorities implemented prison sentences against 3 activists.

Deputy president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights said: "We received confirmed reports that detainees held in block 4 in Jaw Prison are not allowed to perform Friday prayers and religious rituals, and those who practiced their religious freedoms were punished."

The authorities in the prison have been harassing political prisoners and a number of prison guards assaulted one of the detainees for reading a Duaa (supplication).
