Statement by U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern on Bahrain's Wrongful Conviction of Medical Professionals

"I am deeply disappointed in Bahraini court rulings on June 14th that sentenced to jail terms nine medical professionals who were arrested and tortured after they treated Bahraini protesters. These convictions appear to be motivated by the defendants' criticisms of the Bahraini government, and they should be overturned. During their appeal, I urge the Bahraini government to allow these medical professionals to remain at their homes, rather than being kept in jail. More broadly, Bahrain's government should release and drop charges against all detainees who have only engaged in peaceful political expression."
