GENEVA: Bahrain yesterday rejected negative remarks in the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights’ written review on Bahrain’s annual report.

The review contains “inaccurate information” and deliberately and “unfairly sides with malicious elements who have suspicious political agendas and sectarian tendencies and who want to inflict harm” on Bahrain, its permanent representative to the UN office in Geneva Dr Yusuf Abdulkarim Bucheeri said during an interactive dialogue at the 37th session of the Human Rights Council.

“This is crystal clear from their support for the discourse of hatred and internal violence groups and for this reason, the Kingdom of Bahrain totally rejects the content of this statement with all the wrong and unacceptable descriptions it has given to the state.”

Dr Bucheeri said Bahrain “confronts a phenomenon of violent extremism and it is the duty of the Office of the High Commissioner to do its best to double check the credibility of the information it obtained and to seek such information only from neutral, objective and non-politicised sources”.
