Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini security authorities prevented on Tuesday (September 12, 2017) deputy president of the dissolved Bahrain Teachers Association Jalila Al-Salman from leaving the country.
The authorities told Al-Salman that the travel ban imposed on her is issued by the Public Prosecution.
The authorities in Bahrain penalize activists with travel bans, so they would not be able to participate in international events, especially the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) sessions held in Geneva.
During the opening of the UNHRC 36th session on Monday, the High Commissioner for Human Rights Prince Zeid bin Ra'ad Al Hussein criticized the Bahraini authorities' severe restrictions imposed on civil society and political activism through arrests, intimidation and travel bans.
