Bahrain: prisoner's pack


Being arrested and put on trial in a foreign country can be a bewildering and even terrifying experience, especially if you don’t understand the language, don’t know the law and don’t know your rights. This guide will help you understand the criminal justice system of Bahrain at its various stages, from arrest through to remand, trial sentencing and afterwards. It includes guidance on your rights – what should be happening and when – plus some pointers on the best way to deal with your situation, and what support is available to you as a British national.
