Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain Opposition Bloc in London expressed its full rejection to all the political verdicts and trials held in Bahrain since over 7 years against prisoners of conscience in Bahrain, stressing on the necessity to stop these military courts that issued collective death sentences that are considered the first of their kind in Bahrain's history. The bloc pointed out that these courts clearly reflect the track of militarizing Bahrain and declaring martial law in an indirect way.
The statement issued by the bloc on Thursday (December 28, 2017) held Bahrain's king Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa the responsibility of militarizing the state and the death penalties, adding "the military courts had always lacked and still lack legal guarantees."
As of the trial of Al-Wefaq Secretary-General Sheikh Ali Salman, the bloc condemned his continuous detention and trial over fake issues and demanded the public prosecution to bring the king, Crown Prince, cabinet minister, former US Assistant Secretary of State for Middle East Affairs as witnesses because they are the real witnesses on the calls upon which Sheikh Ali Salman is being sued.
