Bahrain Mirror- Exclusive: The Kingdom of Spain demanded Bahrain to develop a national machinery to combat torture and completely cancel death penalty.

In an intervention it made on Monday (May 1, 2017) in the 27th session of the UPR in Geneva on Bahrain's human rights record, Spain recommended Bahrain to ratify main human rights conventions that it hasn't joined yet. It also called the Bahraini government to develop national machinery to combat torture and train police not to use excessive violence in peaceful protests and places of detention.

As for the death penalty punishment, Spain urged Bahrain to freeze it in an introduction to completely eliminate it. It also demanded Bahrain not to intimidate human rights activists, journalists and representatives of civil society institutions and lift restrictions on freedom of expression.
