I think it’s time to duck or find another place to enjoy the forthcoming summer in as summer in Bahrain is promising to be a tad hotter than usual:
Abdulhadi Alkhawaja, president of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, addressed today the meeting of the Human Rights council in Geneva regarding inadequate housing in Bahrain, which he said is the result of corruption and acquiring most of the country lands by members of the ruling family.
In his speech before representatives of Governments and NGOâ€™s from around the world, Alkhawaja criticized the â€œUnited Nations Human Settlements Programmeâ€ for giving the prime minister of Bahrain an award related to achievements in human settlements. He said that the Bahrain Center for Human Rights has addressed the UN Secretary General to review the criteria and nomination procedures for such award to make sure that it is not given to officials who are well known for corruption and human rights abuses.
