Rajab’s trial is scheduled to resume on December 15, 2016, on charges that inherently violate the right to free expression. Among Bahrain’s allies only the United States has publicly called for his release….On September 14, 22 nongovernmental organizations including Human Rights Watch wrote to 50 governments urging them to call for Rajab’s immediate and unconditional release. Only the United States has made a public call for Najab’s release…..On September 4, the New York Times published an open letter from Rajab about human rights abuses in Bahrain.
