A few months ago, the European Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (ECDHR) launched a legal campaign to impose EU Magnitsky sanctions against Bahrain with the aim to end the culture of impunity that is pervasive within the Kingdom. Indeed the Bahraini Government has put in place a repressive machinery that continuously and massively breaches human rights. By imposing sanctions on perpetrators of human rights violations, we hope to send a strong message to the Bahraini government that continued breaches will not go unnoticed nor unpunished.
Thanks to our first event in June (recording here), we had the opportunity to present our legal project and explain its relevance and aims. By this post, we would like to further introduce our amazing legal team which has been developing this project in collaboration with ECDHR and is essential to its development.
