Bahrain Crackdown: Al-Wefaq Considers Accusing Sheikh Ali Salman of Spying is Ridiculous
Local Editor

Bahrain's Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society described the accusation of Bahraini opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman, the society's secretary-general, and two of its MPs, as trivial and reckless, adding that it reflects the extent of the crisis the government is experiencing with its people, with its Gulf neighbors and with the international community.

Al-Wefaq stressed that this accusation is malicious and made-up, and it aims to escape from the insistent political entitlement to urgently, radically, and completely transform towards democracy.

It also pointed out that importing regional crises to pressure the opposition does not make it abandon its national principles or stop it from being a key partner in building the future of political stability in Bahrain.

Al-Wefaq said that this illegal behavior drives it to work harder on building a state of institutions and law based on the contractual constitution and adhere to the popular demands to achieve democracy, reject exclusivity and monopoly on power, wealth, and all elements of life, stop crimes and gross violations of human rights, stop corruption and looting of wealth, and reform the judiciary system to become an independent and impartial authority.

Al-Wefaq further stressed that all this comes from its deeply rooted national ideology and its profound affiliation, which drives it to preserve the homeland and its people.

Earlier, the Public Prosecution in Bahrain referred Sheikh Salman's case, and former MPs Sheikh Hassan Sultan and Ali Al-Aswad to the High Criminal Court on charges of having "intelligence contacts with Qatar".

The Public Prosecution Office began to move the case forward after the political row between Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain and Qatar.

It announced on November 1st that it had interrogated Sheikh Salman on "charges of communicating with the Gulf neighbor."
