Bahrain Crackdown: Cassation Military Court Upholds Death Penalty of 4 Citizens
Local Editor

The Bahraini Military Court of Cassation on Wednesday morning upheld the death sentences issued against four Bahraini civilians convicted of the "assassination" of Marshal Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.


Mubarak Adel Mubarak Mhanna, Fadel Sayed Abbas Hassan Radhi, Sayed Alawi Hussein Alawi Hussain, Mohamed Abdulhassen Ahmed Al-Matghawi, Mohammed Abdulhussain Saleh Al-Shihabi, Mohammed Abdulwahed Mohammed Al-Najjar and Hussein Mohammed Ahmed Shihab all challenged the verdicts issued against them in the case that has been marred by many errors, which have been the focus of criticism of the United Nations and international human rights organizations.

Bahrain's Military Court of Appeal upheld earlier on February 21, 2018 the rulings of the First Instance Military Court, which on December 25, 2017 sentenced to death Mubarak Adel Mubarak Mhanna, Fadel Sayed Abbas Hassan Radhi, Sayed Alawi Hussein Alawi Hussain, Mohamed Abdulhassen Ahmed Al-Matghawi, Sayed Murtada Majid Ramadan Alawi [Al-Sindi], Sheikh Habib Abdullah Hassan Ali [Al-Jamri], also sentencing them to 15 years in prison and stripping them of their Bahraini nationalities.

The First Instance Court also sentenced to seven years' imprisonment Mohammed Abdulhussain Saleh Al-Shihabi, Mohammed Abdulwahed Mohammed Al-Najjar, Hussain Mohammed Ahmed Shihab, Mohammad Yousif Marhoon Al-Ajmi, Hussein Ali Mohsen Badaw, Sayed Mohammed Qasim Mohammed, Ali Jaafar Hassan Al Rayes, also stripping them of their citizenships, while acquitting Ali Ahmed Khalifa Salman [Al-Karbabadi], Hussein Isam Hussein Al-Dirazi, Motazer Fawzi Abdulkarim Mahdi, Rami Ahmed Ali Al-Areesh, Mohammad Abdullah Ibrahim Abbas.

Earlier reports said that families of the prisoners on death row were informed to attend the military court.

In further details, the families of the Bahrainis sentenced to death, and whose verdict was upheld by the Military Court of Cassation, were informed that one person from each family should attend the military court on Thursday at 9:30 am for unknown reasons.

Bahrainis fear that the summoning of the families will come in the context of issuing the decision to execute the death sentences, which raised questions about whether the ratification was given by the country's King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, since the verdict was issued only two hours before the phone calls received by the families.

However, Article 74 of the Constitution of Bahrain stipulates that death penalties cannot be implemented without the king's ratification.
