Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini Ninth Minor Criminal Court, presided over by Judge Hussein Al-Sheikh and Mohammad Al-Harban as secretariat, decided to reconsider the case of the President of the (dissolved) Ulama Islamic Council Sayed Majeed Al-Mashaal, accused of taking part in Diraz protest, for pleading and to call the attesting witness. The court set September 5 as a date to look into Al-Mashaal's case, while remaining in custody.
The authorities have launched the most severe campaign against opposition and Shia majority since March 2011. They toughened the sentence against opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman, revoked the citizenship of spiritual leader Sheikh Isa Qassim, arrested and summoned dozens of Shiite clerics.
