Appeal in case against jailed Bahraini cleric adjourned until October 29

Jailed Bahraini opposition MP Sheikh Hasan Isa had his appeal proceedings adjourned yet again on Tuesday. The next hearing has been scheduled for October 29.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Jailed Bahraini opposition MP Sheikh Hasan Isa had his appeal proceedings adjourned yet again on Tuesday. The next hearing has been scheduled for October 29.

In a process that has dragged on for months due to repeated delays, Sheikh Isa is appealing a ten-year prison sentence.

Arrested in 2015 and later charged with “financing terrorism”, the former deputy was a member of the opposition Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society.

In August, Al-Wefaq marked three years since Sheikh Isa’s arrest by calling for his immediate release and describing his continuing imprisonment as an act of ‘political revenge’.
