Shia Rights Watch: The risk of racial discrimination in Bahrain makes it imperative to establish an international court to sentence the accused politically

Shia Rights Watch organization confirmed that the risk of racial discrimination in Bahrain makes it imperative to establish an international court to sentence the accused politically.

The organization said in a statement, "Recently, one of the Bahraini courts of cassation issued a decision stipulating the death penalty against a number of detainees on a dual political/sectarian background, whose decision is marred by suspicions that raise disapproval, requiring the intervention of the international community to stop the flagrant violations of Shia citizens.

It added that it was aware of the circumstances of the accusations and the subsequent decision to execute the defendants, as the evidence showed the absence of legal standards for these trials, as well as the lack of transparency and fairness in issuing the judgments. 

Bahrain’s Court of Cassation upheld the death penalty for activists Mohammed Ramadhan and Hussein Moosa accused of killing a police officer, despite confirming confessions obtained under torture of investigators.

The organization pointed out that this incident is not the first of its kind in Bahrain, and it has recorded many violations and procedures that violate the rights of Shias over the past years, demanding the United Nations and the Human Rights Council to establish an international court that puts an end to the farce of political judgments in the Middle East in general, and Bahrain in particular, to ensure presumed justice when sentencing the accused against a political background.
