AP Speaker praises Bahrain’s implementation of alternative penalties, open prisons

Adel Abdulrahman Al Asoomi, Speaker of Arab Parliament (AP), has praised the sound vision of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in implementing alternative penalties and the open prisons programme, stemming from HM’s pioneering humanitarian approach and reformist mindset.


Addressing the opening session of the ninth Arab Interior Ministers’ Conference on Human Rights, Al-Asoomi expressed appreciation to Government of Bahrain, led by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, for upholding human rights values and advancing human rights in Arab countries.


Al Asoomi affirmed the Arab Parliaments’ support for Bahrain’s efforts to enhance human rights respect in security work, praising the Kingdom’s distinguished experience in this field.


He highlighted that protecting and promoting human rights are a key responsibility of Arab interior ministries, as they require achieving a balance between ensuring security and stability, on the one hand, and keeping these measures in line with human rights standards and international law, on the other.
