Bahrain: Younis Ashoori (prisioner of conscience) pushed to near death by prison abuses

The Bahrain Center for Human Right alerts of the extreme danger that Dr. Younis Ashouri, 60, director of the maternity, has been pushed by the Khalifa dictatorship to near death.

Ashouri, who was kidnapped by masked policemen and then sentenced to three years after being forced to sign some papers under torture,  has a number of illnesses:
... chronic urinary stone recurrences which needs a surgery, enlarged prostate, heart problem history and a type of migraine which leaves him temporarily paralysed.
Since he was imprisoned he's been denied access to his medicines, what puts his health in extreme danger.
