Bahrain Mirror - Exclusive: The Islamic Republic of Iran expressed concern the continuous persecution of Shiites in Bahrain, arrests, and deprivation of citizenships for some Shiite religious clerics.
In its intervention on Monday (May 1, 2017) during the 27th UPR session in Geneva on Bahrain's human rights record, Iran said that Bahrain increased its pressures on civil society institutions, dissolved political parties, and imprisoned spiritual leaders.
