Free Bahrain's Leading Human Rights Defender Nabeel Rajab

Human rights activist Nabeel Rajab is in prison in Bahrain for 2 years as punishment for speaking to the media about restrictions on press freedom in Bahrain. He's threatened with another 15 years in a separate case stemming solely from Tweets in which he criticized the war in Yemen and the use of torture in Bahraini prisons.

Immediately and unconditionally release Nabeel Rajab and all other prisoners of conscience held solely for exercising their right to free expression.
