Bahrain’s major opposition group, Al-Wefaq, lashed out at political authority in the country, few hours after a regime court has issued death sentences against six citizens.
Al-Wefaq, in a statement, said that sentences are null and void, stressing that they were based on false accusations and forced confessions following savage torture of prisoners.
“The political authority has proven it is not qualified to rule the country due to its punitive and reckless policies,” the statement said.
The simplest rights of people in the country are violated as the judiciary system is utilized to punish descents, according to the statement.
Al-Wefaq, meanwhile, urged the international community to “bear its historical responsibility and save the Bahraini majority which has been oppressed” by the political authority in the country.
