Bahrain Crackdown: Court Sentences 24 Shiites to Jail, Revoking Citizenship

Local Editor

Continuing its crackdown against Shia citizens, a Bahrain court sentenced 24 of them to prison and stripped them of their nationality after claiming they are guilty of forming a "terrorist group", a Bahraini judicial source said Thursday.

Other claimed allegations included travelling to Iraq and Iran for "weapons and explosives training" and attempted murder of police officers.

The High Criminal Court on Wednesday sentenced 10 of the defendants to life in prison, 10 to a decade behind bars and the other four to jail terms ranging from three to five years.

The Shiite-majority kingdom has so far stripped hundreds of its citizens of their nationality and jailed dozens of high-profile activists and religious clerics since protests demanding an elected government erupted in early 2011.

Authorities on Wednesday also referred to trial seven Bahrainis accused of attacking an oil pipeline to Saudi Arabia in November.

Under Bahrain's citizenship law, amended after political protests broke out in 2011, the authorities can revoke the nationality of individuals who engage in acts deemed "disloyal" to the state.

Human Rights Watch in February accused the kingdom of "stripping away the citizenships of people whom they find undesirable".
