Bahrain: don't execute victims of torture
Urgent – executions imminent
Maher Abbas al-Khabbaz was beaten, whipped and electrocuted before he was forced at gunpoint to make a false confession to killing a police officer in 2013. His execution is now imminent, awaiting only a signed death warrant from Bahrain’s King.
Will you join us in calling on the the King of Bahrain and the Bahraini government to stop the executions of Maher and other victims of torture?

To His Majesty the King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa:
We, the undersigned, call on the Bahraini government to stop all executions and impose a moratorium on the death penalty pending a full public inquiry into allegations of torture and forced confessions by those on death row, and strip military tribunals of the power to try civilians.
