Human rights activists Nabeel Rajab was released on bail on Monday morning after more than three weeks in custody.
The head of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights was arrested on May 5 at Manama airport after returning from a human rights conference in Beirut, Lebanon. The judge agreed to the request to free him on 300 Bahraini dinar ($800) bail with a travel ban. Rajab still faces charges of “inciting illegal rallies and marches online by using social networking websites.
This video is the first interview of Nabeel Rajab after he was released this morning.
”This is the first time I was imprisoned that long. During my time in jail I have learnt a lot and one thing I now know for sure is that we are ruled by a Tyrant and that we should continue fighting this brutal regime until we are given our rights, rights that set into motion the February 14 Revolution. Fighting and resistance will continue until we are granted our legitimate rights."
