Bahrain Salam for Human Rights appeals to human rights organizations and activists to take urgent steps for releasing Jassim Mohammed Al-Banna (17 years), which suffers from a heart disease and is handicapped. The public prosecution has charged him put him under arrest for 60 days pending further investigation facing the law on terrorism or what is known as the law of protecting the community from terrorist acts 2006.

Al-Banna was arrested after a raid on his house at dawn Monday 6th January and got him transferred to an unknown place. After attempts to search for the place of his detention by his family, he was found to be in custody of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ministry of the Interior who refused to provide the family with any information about Al-Banna.

He was then transferred to dry dock prison without giving his family any details about the charges against him. This is an arbitrary vulgar of laws and principles of human rights which are often overridden by the security authorities and prosecutors in Bahrain.
