Bahrain Mirror: Lawyer Abdullah Al-Shamlawi said that burying the bodies of those killed in the raid on the Diraz sit-in contrary to adopted customs is a flagrant violation of the Constitution, the National Action Charter and established norms in the country, pointing out that Article 22 of the Constitution stipulates that freedom of conscience is absolute and the State guarantees the inviolability of places of worship and the freedom to perform religious rituals, processions and gatherings in accordance with the established customs in the country.
He noted that Article 52 of Law No. (3) for the year 1975 on public health stipulates that: The relatives of the deceased shall arrange for the burial of his body. The executing authority may do so in some cases, particularly in case of death of a person as a result of a contagious disease, which takes place in compliance with the provisions of the Shari'a and supervision of the relatives of the deceased if the deceased had any.
Al-Shamlawi further stressed that the law must be respected law, "especially by those entrusted with keeping order and implementing the law. Therefore, if the narrative is true that the authorities decided to bury the bodies of those killed during the raid on the Diraz sit-in a few days ago, or carried out the burial ceremony, them this is a blatant violation of the National Charter of Action, the Constitution and the law, which calls for criminal accountability of the party that violated the Constitution and the established customs in the country."
