About Us gathers information from different sources giving particular emphasis to the defence of human rights.

We, the undersigned human rights organizations, would like to thank you for your 28 February 2012 letters and your offer of assistance with arranging our upcoming visits to the Kingdom of Bahrain. At the same time, we must object to the conditions placed on our visits, in particular the extremely short timeframe. The five-business-day limit appears to be arbitrary and will greatly impede our ability to monitor and research human rights developments.

* Note: On February 28, 2012, Bahrain's Ministry of Human Rights and Social Development informed Human Rights Watch and other non-governmenal and humanitarian organizations that travel periods in Bahrain for NGOs would be limited to five consecutive days.*



Her Excellency Fatima al-Balooshi
