Bahrain fails to live up to its promises and unnecessarily torture the anti-government protestors, says the Amnesty International report released on Tuesday.
The 58-page report titled Flawed Reforms: Bahrain Fails to Achieve Justice for Protestors exposes the injustice done against the protestors during the Arab uprising in 2011.
"The authorities are trying to portray the country as being on the road to reform, but we continue to receive reports of torture and use of unnecessary and excessive force against protests. Their reforms have only scratched the surface," said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International's Middle East and North Africa Deputy Director in the report.
According to the Amnesty report the government lacks the political will to hold the guilty senior officers responsible for their act.
The hard-hitting report also reveals how the government has continued to fail in providing adequate justice for the victims of human rights violations.
However, the Bahraini government continues to insist that they are keen on implementing the necessary reforms.
While responding to the report, CNN quoted a Bahraini government spokesperson as saying that the London-based watchdog is seeing the glass half empty and not half full.
The report has come as a slap on the face of the government, just days ahead of the prestigious Grand prix.
Amidst the new protests against the Sunni rulers brewing in the Shiite-majority kingdom, calls are also being made to cancel the F1 race which is scheduled over the weekend.
The planned competition was cancelled due to the unrest in 2011.
The International Crisis Group (ICG) also warned that the government is sliding towards yet another dangerous eruption of violence and to heed calls for real reform, reported the AFP.
Meanwhile, the circuit chairman of the Bahrain Grand Prix, Zayed Al Zayani has assured that the safety concerns during the race will be taken care of.
"I don't think anything drastic will happen. It's not Afghanistan. It's not Syria. I don't see why anything should happen this year that hasn't happened in the previous years," Daily Mirror quoted Al Zayani as saying.
