The Danish Interventions are Unacceptable!

On April 7, 2012 a Danish newspaper published "Ambassador has now spoken with Al-Khawaja"

"Ambassadør har nu talt med al-Khawaja"


The translation of the report as follows: 

The Danish Ambassador Christian Kønigsfeld,  has this afternoon been given the opportunity to speak with the imprisoned Danish citizen al-Khawaja, who very weakened,is admitted to a military hospital in Bahrain.

Head of Consular Services at the Danish Foreign Ministry, Ole Mikkelsen, has spoken with the Ambassador on his visit to Al-Khawaja.

He says that the situation is unchanged from yesterday. Abdulhadi al-Khawaja is receiving intravenous treatment and he is still severely weakened. He is conscious, he said
Continous Efforts

Al-Khawaja has been on hunger strike for 59 days in protest against the verdict of life imprisonment, he has received for his peaceful demonstrations against the country’s autocratic rule (Danish) Ministry of Foreign Affairs  is still working on getting al-Khawaja released It takes place on several levels. There is that what is happening in Bahrain, where our ambassador is working very hard to get a solution put in place, but there are also various other contacts. Among other things, our Foreign Minister, who has been at the forefront of the diplomatic campaign.

It is something that continues during Easter, and we hope it will turn out successful. We  continuously  have a dialogue with the government and that gives us hope that it is possible to find a solution, says Ole Mikkelsen.
