Bahrain reforms to prevent unrest
Manama, March 21, 2012
Bahrain has put in place major administrative and legal mechanisms to prevent a repeat of last year's unrest, said His Majesty King Hamad yesterday.
These include security and judicial reforms, enhancing educational curricula, establishing a detailed plan to reform the media, ensuring employees' reinstatement, establishing compensation schemes for unrest victims and launching programmes for national, social and economic reconciliation.
Setting up an independent ombudsman's office at the Interior Ministry is in the pipeline along with forming an office for an independent inspector-general at the National Security Agency and a special investigation unit to hold accountable those that have erred during the events of last year. - TradeArabia News Service
