On December 22nd, in the absence of law enforcement by Government of Bahrain and Ministry of Interior. Bahrain witnessed another operation by Hezbollah's (Alwefaq) militias called "Promise of Martyrs". The operation as usual blocked roads, poured oil on the streets, burned tires, threatened civilians and disturbed the tiny land.
From a while we heard the news of signing a contract by the Ministry of Interiors with former Metropolitan police assistant commissioner John Yates to oversee reform of its police force after reports of human rights abuses.
Mr. Yates has been asked to overhaul the controversial service with John Timoney, a former head of Miami police, to ensure its procedures meet international human rights standards. Damien McElroy, The Telegraph
Bahrain's ministry of interior notes that while in the Miami job, Timoney "succeeded amongst other things in reducing crime and implementing proper practices for the use of force". Guardians said.
“The expatriate population in Bahrain is alleged to have been the target of violent attacks during the events of February/March 2011. Most complaints received by the Commission pertained to physical injuries, property damage, economic loss, deprivation of the freedom of movement, denial of medical treatment and attacks at places of worship”
"During various demonstrations, antiexpatriate and guest worker chants and slogans were heard. emonstrators held banners targeting naturalised Bahrainis, threatening them and asking them to leave the country. Some of these banners read: Bahrain is free, free. Oh naturalised get out; Bahrain is free free, Oh naturalised, Oh mercenary, Oh killer, your departure time has come; and Shia plus Sunnis minus naturalised equals a loving country”

"The Commission received reports that foreigners were attacked on the streets of Manama. A report prepared by the Pakistani Ministry of Foreign Affairsdetails an incident on 13 March in which an angry mob locked approximately 40 Pakistanis in Alkuthoot Restaurant and tried to set it on fire"
"A group of individuals entered a residential building in Manama that was inhabited mostly by Asian workers. The group began attacking residents, among whom was a Pakistani citizen named Mr Abdul Malik Gholam Rasul, who was beaten to death"
"A Pakistani construction worker and Muezzin (person who performs the Islamic call to prayer) suffered serious brain injuries after he was brutally assaulted and had his tongue severely lacerated"
"The Commission received statements from 19 complainants indicating that foreign nationals were discriminated against and mistreated by medical staff and protestors while visiting SMC during February and March 2011”
"A female member of the Sunni community was stopped by protesters while driving her vehicle. The protesters then attacked her vehicle with sticks and knives"
"The Commission received 434 complaints from members of the Sunni community. These included claims of physical abuse, verbal abuse and threats to personal safety"
"The Commission received 102 complaints regarding physical abuse and 120 complaints regarding verbal abuse suffered by individuals who claimed that they were targeted because they were Sunni. Several individuals testified to having witnessed the physical assault of other Sunnis"
"One witness stated that his colleagues arrived at work covered in their own blood due to attacks by protesters on the way to work. Several individuals claimed to have been the victim of armed assaults"
And more and more ..
Why no one cares about these Human Rights Violations done by the what's called "Peaceful Protesters" asking for more political rights! by International media?
The Government of Bahrain, Ministry of Interior, John Yates and his assistant John Timoney must provide security solution for all citizens and residents.
The expatriates and sunnis must not feel discriminated and unsafe because of media campaigns, fake Human Rights organizations, and foreign pressures for more Political reforms neglecting the demands of more than 70% of population in Bahrain to live in peace.
