Members of European Parliament Urges Bahrain King to Release Political Prisoners

Members of European Parliament Urges Bahrain King to Release Political Prisoners

Alwaght- Forty-four Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) urged Bahraini King to release of political prisoners, and embark on an honest and comprehensive dialogue with the opposition in order to ensure economic sustainability in the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom.

On Monday, the lawmakers called on King Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa to free the political inmates, and start meaningful negotiations with opposition figures, led by Secretary General of the Haq Movement Hassan Mushaima, emphasizing that such confidence-building measures will pave the way for an end to the violence being exercised by regime forces as well as ongoing protest rallies, and will lay the foundation for economic growth in the future, Arabic-language Lua Lua television network reported.

They also called on the Bahraini king to either grant royal clemency to Mohamed Ramadan and Husain Ali Moosa, who were sentenced to death in a collective judgment in 2014, or to commute their sentences.

King Hamad was also requested to oblige Bahraini judicial authorities to conduct a prompt and impartial investigation into all allegations of torture in the country’s detention centers, and implement recommendations presented by the Truth Commission – a body set up by a coalition of political and human rights societies to help bring justice and reconciliation to victims of abuse, particularly former inmates who apparently suffered while in prison.

Moreover, the MEPs asked the Bahraini ruler to adhere to international standards concerning fair trials and related procedures, and roundly dismiss officers from the Ministry of the Interior who are involved in heinous cases of torture crimes and put them on trial.

Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011.

They are demanding that the Al Khalifah regime relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established. Manama has gone to great lengths to clamp down on any sign of dissent. On March 14, 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to assist Bahrain in its crackdown.

On March 5, 2017, Bahrain’s parliament approved the trial of civilians at military tribunals in a measure blasted by human rights campaigners as being tantamount to imposition of an undeclared martial law countrywide.

King Hamad ratified the constitutional amendment on April 3 that year.
