Bahrain unrest probe alerts on deadline
Manama, September 4, 2011
The commission set up to investigate the recent unrest in Bahrain has called on anyone with complaints to comply with this week's deadline.
The Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) urged individuals and societies with complaints which fall under the commission's fact-finding mandate to schedule interviews with its investigating team over the next week.
They must come forward to arrange interviews by Thursday by calling hotlines. Failure to do this means they will miss their final slot on September 30, it said.
The BICI has hired four more investigators to bolster its team to accommodate further complaints coming under its mandate of investigating human rights violations in Bahrain since the events of February and March this year.
Between them, the new investigators are expected to interview 1,000 people and the BICI reminded interested parties of the deadline of September 30 and the importance of contacting the commission by September 8.
The final report is due to be submitted on October 30 to His Majesty King Hamad and will be made public in its entirety.
The BICI is mandated to "investigate and report on the events occurring in Bahrain in February and March 2011, and any subsequent consequences arising out of the aforementioned events, and to make such recommendations as it may deem appropriate". – TradeArabia News Service
