Meeting with Amnesty International

On 4 March 2009, the President of the Monitor met with Dr. Said Boumedouha, a researcher in the Middle East Section at the International Secretariat of Amnesty International (AI) in London (Dr. Boumedouha is also in charge of Bahrain's disk in AI), and with Mr. Khalid Chibane, also a researcher in the Middle East Section. The meeting discussed the latest developments in the human rights situation in Bahrain as well as the possibility of sending observers to attend trials to be held soon of what is known as 'Alhujjaira case', and also the trial of the political activist Hasan Mushaima and his colleagues, as AI would like to ensure that all these trials are conducted in accordance with (standards of fair trial).
