Bahrain Mirror: Amnesty International said the Appeals court's decision against opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman demonstrates the Bahraini authorities' relentless and unlawful efforts to silence any form of dissent.

Amnesty condemned through its Twitter account the decision of appeals court that overturned the acquittal sentence of Sheikh Ali Salman and sentenced him to life in jail. It also issued a statement regarding the verdict against Sheikh Salman.

Bahrain's Appeals Court issued on Sunday (November 4, 2018) a life term sentence against Al-Wefaq secretary-general Sheikh Ali Salman and overturned the acquittal verdict issued by the Supreme Court. It also sentence Al-Wefaq 2 former MPs Sheikh Hassan Sultan and Ali Al-Aswad to life in jail over charge of colluding with Qatar.
