PEN International oppfordrar forfattarar og andre om å skrive direkte til bloggaren Al-Singace i Bahrain. Akademikaren, aktivisten og bloggaren Dr. Abduljalil Al-Singace har sveltestreika sidan 21. mars i år i protest mot fengselsforholda. PEN er urolege for helsa hans, og ber folk om å skrive brev til han.

PEN International is seriously concerned for the health of prominent academic, activist and blogger Dr. Abduljalil Al-Singace, who has been on hunger strike since 21 March 2015 in protest at conditions in Jaw prison. Dr Al-Singace requires specialist medical treatment for ongoing health problems, some of which result from torture and ill-treatment in prison. He is serving a life sentence for his peaceful opposition activities. PEN International is calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Dr. Abduljalil Al-Singace and all those detained in Bahrain in violation of Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Bahrain is a state party. It also demands that Dr. Al-Singace receives full access to medical attention as a matter of urgency, and that his reports of ill-treatment in Jaw prison are fully investigated.
