Bahrain situation ‘tense, unpredictable': U.N. rights chief

From The Daily Star Lebanon.

GENEVA: The U.N. rights chief warned Tuesday that the situation in Bahrain remains “tense and unpredictable,” with small protests still being repressed and hundreds of cases involving demonstrators pending trial.

“We understand that the situation in Bahrain remains tense and unpredictable,” said Rupert Colville, spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.

“We continue to receive reports of the repression of small protests and understand that at least 264 cases involving protestors remain pending before the courts, many of whom may be tried in the Court of National Safety, which is effectively a military court,” he added.
