Jurists said that an atmosphere of terror and anxiety dominates the detainees in Joe Central Prison, after reports were received of a suspected case of the emerging coronavirus, “Covid 19”, for a prisoner of Pakistani nationality.

The head of the Gulf Institute for Democracy and Human Rights “Yahya Al-Hadid” circulated an audio record of one of the detainees inside the Prison as he talked about “suspicion that one of the new prisoners in building 2 was infected with the Corona virus, which caused terror among the detainees and the police in the mentioned building.”

The human rights activist, Ibtisam Al-Saegh, indicated on her Twitter account that despite the spread of fear of an outbreak of this epidemic, with suspicion of an infected case, the prison administration continues additional penalties such as “isolation and solitary confinement”. She  added that the prisoners of conscience Ali al-Wazeer and Muhammad Rida Louloui were moved to solitary confinement.

In a statement on Friday 13 March 2020, the February 14 Coalition held Al-Khalifa regime,  full responsibility for the safety of all those prevented from returning to their homeland, and the safety of all political detainees whose danger is exacerbated with the spread of the epidemic, as the duty and the right require that prisons should be empty and all prisoners should be released without restriction or condition, according to the statement.
