Bahraini Regime Jails Al-Wefaq Leader Sheikh Hassan Isa

Wednesday 29 March 2017
Bahraini Regime Jails Al-Wefaq Leader Sheikh Hassan Isa

Alwaght- A Bahrain regime court sentenced on Wednesday Al-Wefaq prominent leader and former MP Sheikh Hassan Isa to 10 years in prison.

Sheikh Isa faced trumped-up charges of funding a "terrorist group" accused of carrying out blast in Sitra that killed two policemen and injured 66 others.

The same court issued death penalty sentences against two suspects and whole-life sentences against 5 others. Meanwhile, it sentenced the other defendants to periods ranging from 6 months to 10 years in prison.

The court also revoked the citizenship of 8 defendants out of 24 suspects in the case (12 of them imprisoned).

This comes after a Bahraini regime court summoned a minor to stand trial for participation in a pro-democracy protest rally.

Ali Naim Marhoun, 10, was summoned to a court on Sunday after the Public Prosecution filed a lawsuit against the child, who has not yet reached legal age.

Ali’s mother said that other children, too, who were all still very young, had been summoned along with Ali to the Minor Criminal Court to stand similar charges.

Elsewhere, the family of martyr Mostafa Hamdan published on Tuesday the will he wrote before he martyred while taking part in the protest outside Sheikh Isa Qassim's house in Duraz.

Martyr Hamdan said in his will "the most important thing is not to surrender Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim and not to knee before the tyrant."

Hamdan, 18, died last Tuesday at the Salmaniya Medical Complex, two months after security forces shot him in head and rendered him comatose.

The village of Duraz has been subjected to a police blockade since June 2016, when authorities rendered stateless Sheikh Isa Qassim, the most senior Islamic cleric in Bahrain. Qassim’s home in Duraz has been the site of a peaceful sit-in since that time. Police have blocked off nearly all entrances to the village and established checkpoints at the remaining two, excessively restricting the right to freedom of movement of Duraz’s residents, business owners and visitors.

Anti-regime protests have been held in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular Islamic Awakening uprising began in the country in 2011. The Al Khalifa regime has used an iron fist to silence dissent.

In March 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates — themselves repressive Arab regimes — were deployed to aid Bahrain in its brutal crackdown. Many people have lost their lives and hundreds of others sustained injuries or been arrested and illegally detained.
