Urgent Action: Prisoner of conscience denied medical access

Hajer Mansoor Hassan, aged 50, who is held in Isa Town Detention Centre for Women in Bahrain, is being denied adequate medical care. Hajer Mansoor is the mother-in-law of prominent human rights activist Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei, who is based in the United Kingdom. She is a prisoner of conscience, who was detained following an unfair trial, staged to silence Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei. In August 2018, Hajer Mansoor discovered a lump in her breast, and although she underwent medical tests including a mammogram, she was not informed of the results. Hajer fears that the lump might be cancerous, and her repeated requests to be referred for medical check-ups have been ignored. Meanwhile, the Cassation Court is expected to issue its verdict into her three-year prison sentence, on February 25.  

Take action.
