The Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy alongside 16 NGOs today voiced our support for the UN joint-statement on human rights in Bahrain. The joint-statement, delivered by Switzerland at the 30th session of the UN Human Rights Council, was co-signed by 33 countries, including 19 EU states and the United States.
The NGOs invite states who have not signed to do so. The joint-statement remains open for additional signatories until the end of the Human Rights Council session on 2 October 2015. We call on those who have signed to continue exerting collective pressure for human rights progress in Bahrain.
