BlackHouse, Aug. 23 – A human rights organization has revealed a document that the United States trains Bahraini forces to suppress peaceful protesters.
Despite the brutality of Bahrain’s security forces in suppressing peaceful protesters for realizing justice and democracy, the United States continues to support these forces and train them. It does not pay attention to the crimes committed by these forces against the people who are defenseless.
In this regard, Brian Dooley, the director of “Human Rights First”, disclosed a document which proves US involvement in training Bahrain’s security and government forces including some members of the notorious Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science.
Brian stressed that the organization obtained information from the US Department of State that shows in May 2015, the ministry has held a 12-day training course entitled “combating internal and trans-boundary terrorism ” for 15 Bahraini security forces.
He added: “Bahrainis who attended the course were 15 people from Bahrain’s criminal investigation, police centers in the south and the capital of the country, financial information center and joint counter-terrorism centers.”
Brian said: “US officials stated in the document the purpose of the training course is to empower participants to develop preventive information and information technologies to combat “terrorism” and law enforcement.”
