SALAM calls on Bahraini regime to ‘stop fabricating charges' against opposition Leader & release him

SALAM for Democracy and Human Rights is calling for the immediate release of Bahrain’s opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman and demanding Manama “stop fabricating charges” against him.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - SALAM for Democracy and Human Rights is calling for the immediate release of Bahrain’s opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman and demanding Manama “stop fabricating charges” against him.

A Manama court is expected to issue a final verdict in an espionage case against Sheikh Salman on June 21.

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

The charges stem from a US-sponsored mediation attempt during Bahrain’s popular uprising in 2011, which was also supported by the Bahraini monarch.

The diplomatic initiative succeeded in establishing preliminary communications between Qatar – as a potential mediator – and the Bahraini government and opposition.

But after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE severed ties with Doha last summer, the diplomatic initiative has been touted by Manama as part of Qatar’s campaign to fuel unrest in Bahrain.

According to SALAM, Sheikh Salman’s defense team presented evidence showing that the prosecution’s case against the opposition leader is fabricated.

The rights group also urged the international community to pressure Manama into halting its prosecution of critics and human rights activists.
