Pro bono spotlight on: Michelle Glassman Bock

9 Apr 2013

In May 2011 Bahraini journalist Nazeeha Saeed covered a pro-democracy demonstration for the France 24 TV channel. Afterwards she was arrested and she says she was tortured for 13 hours by five police officers. After many delays the case reached court but only one officer ever faced trial. She was acquitted. MLDI is appealing to the UN to investigate the handling of the Nazeeha’s case and Michelle Glassman Bock, an international arbitration lawyer at Wilmer Hale, was part of the pro bono team that prepared the case.
