Protest Demanding the Release of Detainees
On 20 February 2010, a peaceful protest was held demanding the
release of detainees in the ‘Maameer’ case, when an innocent Pakistani
worker was burnt to death during riots. The families of the detainees
and a number of political activists and religious leaders participated
in the protest, in which they carried banners and pictures under
the Bahraini flag. They also issued a statement saying they will
use all peaceful means to demand the release of the detainees.
