Al-Wefaq condemns Sheikh Ali Salman’s trial

The group stressed that the ongoing hearings in the case, the latest of which took place on Thursday, reveals the extent of the “fraud, mockery, … and the faltering and lack of justice.”

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Bahrain’s Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society reiterated its condemnation of the ongoing trial against the country’s opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman.

The group stressed that the ongoing hearings in the case, the latest of which took place on Thursday, reveals the extent of the “fraud, mockery, … and the faltering and lack of justice.”

Sheikh Salman, who is already serving a 4-year prison term, was charged with “spying for the state of Qatar” last November.

The charges in the case stem from his contacts with Qatari officials, who acted as mediators during a 2011 US-GCC initiative aimed at resolving Bahrain’s political crisis.

According to Al-Wefaq, the trail has nothing to do with justice but is the result of the ongoing rift in the Gulf, pitting Qatar against a Saudi-led bloc of countries.

Bahrain joined Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in sanctioning Qatar in June over Doha’s alleged support for “terrorism”.

Al-Wefaq also pointed out that the case against Bahrain’s opposition leader has long since lost its legitimacy and is continuing based on fabrications, and the testimonies of the false witnesses.
