The Launch of a Website for Human Rights in Bahrain

On 26th April, and under the patronage of the Minster of State for Foreign Affairs, Nazar al Baharna, a special website for the Comprehensive Periodic Review of human rights was launched. The website contains information on human rights in the Kingdom of Bahrain in all fields, such as the rights of women, children and foreign workers, among others. The website also contains special human rights questionnaires as well as a discussion forum. The Supervising Committee looks forward to receiving the views, comments and suggestions of citizens and residents which would promote and protect human rights. The website was prepared with the cooperation of all interested parties, including the Government and civil society representatives. The launch also comes within the framework of the Committee’s work to implement its commitments as well as the recommendations of the Comprehensive Periodic Review.
