In an interview Wednesday, Bahraini Finance Minister Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa said the detainee mistreatment the report identified was "totally unacceptable," adding that the government was prosecuting 20 officers and seeking amendments to Bahrain's anti-torture law.
Mr. Khalifa said the Gulf Cooperation Council's (GCC) recent pledge of $10 billion over 10 years will not suffice to meet Bahrain's needs.
