Dr Abduljalil AlSingace, an imprisoned Bahraini opposition activist and human rights defender, has been on a hunger strike since 8 July 2021 in protest against persistent ill-treatment at the hands of Jau Prison authorities, the main prison in Bahrain, and to demand that a book he wrote in prison, to which he devoted four years of research, be immediately handed to his family following its confiscation in April.
