Al Khalifeh regime issued life-sentences for five Shia activist, one teenager

SHAFAQNA- The Al Khalifeh regime issued life sentences for fake charges against Shia activists for the so-called ‘forming a terrorist cell’, according to Iran Press .

According to local news outlets, the court sentenced the first five suspects to life in jail and handed down the other sixth and seventh suspects to seven-year jail terms.

On Wednesday, the Bahraini officials claimed that the suspects were possessing and manufacturing explosives, possessing firearms and ammunition without a license, receiving training on weapons and explosive materials and funding terrorism.

The Bahraini court claimed in its sham cases against these activists that they were “Planning to Blow Up ATMs”.

A teenager, named as ‘Abdul Hadi Rajab’ is among the convicts.

Thousands of anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country in mid-February 2011.

They are demanding that the Al Khalifa regime relinquish power and allow a just system representing all Bahrainis to be established, IQNA told.
