(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Bahraini court adjourned on Thursday (March 22, 2018) the trial of opposition leader and Al-Wefaq Secretary-General and two Al-Wefaq leaders Sheikh Hassan Sultan and Ali Al-Aswad until April 24 for pleading.

The Public Prosecution accused Salman of communicating with Qatar over phone calls between him and former Qatari Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim Al Thani, as part of a political effort to resolve the crisis that broke out in Bahrain in February 2011.

Sheikh Salman denied the accusations raised against him, while Qatar's Prime Minister commented on the charges in a television program, stressing that the calls were conducted with the knowledge of the King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa within the framework of a US-Gulf initiative to settle the crisis.

The Deputy Secretary General of Al-Wefaq, Sheikh Hussein Al-Daihi, confirmed that Hamad bin Jassim had two conversations with Sheikh Salman, one was in the presence of the King and the second with former Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, Jeffrey Feltman.
