Kameel Juma Hasan, the son of former prisoner Najah Ahmed Yusuf, remains imprisoned on multiple cases involving charges of participation in demonstrations. The group trial of 39 defendants including Kameel Juma Hasan concluded on 13 September 2020 with his conviction and sentencing to five years in prison. Bahrain courts have also convicted and sentenced Kameel Juma Hasan in over a dozen further cases since 2019. Given the high number of cases brought against him, Amnesty International believes Kameel Juma Hasan was targeted in reprisal against his family after he and his mother had refused to be government informants and his mother stated publicly that she was abused under interrogation.
