Bahraini politician's wife tells of fear

Amal Matar tells Al Jazeera that arbitrary arrests have made people scared of testifying before investigating panels.



    The government of Bahrain insists human rights experts are being given unrestricted access to investigate allegations of abuse during protests earlier this year.    

    However, hundreds of protestors remain in prison as stories circulate of torture and arbitrary arrests.

    Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford spoke to Amal Matar, the wife of Matar Ibrahim Matar, a jailed opposition politician.
