I was doing my duty as a human rights observer monitoring a peaceful demonstration when the riot police assaulted me.

Suleiman Yousef bin Jassim is the co-founder of the National Committee for Monitoring Governmental Violations. In 2013, he attended a protest in his capacity as a human rights monitor and he was chased and beaten by the police.

HRDs face intimidation, travel restrictions, detention without charges, violent police crackdowns, and increasingly serious judicial harassment.
