Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's Minor Criminal Court adjourned the case of Shiite cleric and Imam of Al-Kheif Mosque Sheikh Isa Al-Moamen and decided to issue its verdict in his case on November 24.

The authorities accuse Al-Moamen of inciting hatred against the regime over a Friday sermon he delivered in Al-Kheif mosque on the onset of August.

Human rights organizations say that Al-Moamen (59 years) faces up to 3 years in prison according to the charges brought against him.

The Bahraini authorities have escalated their campaign against Shiite clerics since June 2016, after the revocation of the Shiite majority spiritual leader, Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim's citizenship.

The authorities have arrested dozens of Shiite clerics since June and imprisoned a number of them over assembling outside Sheikh Isa Qassim's house or inciting hatred against the regime based on their delivered religious sermons.
