Detained trio were all related to British-based human rights activist Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei
Bahrain has been found guilty by a UN body of arbitrarily detaining three relatives of a British-based human rights activist as a reprisal for his protest in London against the visit of the king of Bahrain in 2017.
The UN, in a judgment published on Thursday, has called for all three to be released from detention and suggested the evidence shows they have been the victims of torture and false confessions.
