Fulad 'verbally abused'
GENEVA: Bahrain Human Rights Watch Society secretary-general Faisal Fulad was verbally abused yesterday by a number of pro-Iranian Bahrainis. This happened as he met representatives of GCC-European Human Rights Centre and a number of Iranians in front of the UN headquarters in Geneva to condemn the Islamic republic's flagrant interference in the internal affairs of Bahrain, Syria and Lebanon, in addition to its oppression against its own people. Mr Fulad, along with civil societies in Bahrain and the GCC, filed a complaint with the UN condemning Iran for its aggressive stance, our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej reported.
