Note to editor: The Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) was set up by royal decree on 29 June 2011 in order to investigate the government response to civil and political unrest that has gripped Bahrain since pro-reform protests erupted in February of the same year. IHRC has highlighted the existence of concerns regarding the nature of the commission, the conditions surrounding its establishment, the extreme nature of the many abuses under investigation and, in turn, the limits on its remit and possible shortcomings of the commission.[ENDS]
