Members of the European Parliament condemn the executions in Bahrain

 

Fourteen members of the European Parliament sent a letter to Bahrain's ambassador to Belgium, Bahia al-Jishi, expressing deep concern and condemnation of the execution of Bahraini activists in late July, according to very unfair trials.

The members expressed their unequivocal condemnation of these atrocities, especially after several UN human rights experts called on the government of Bahrain to stop them, stressing that the victims had been tortured and had not received fair trials.

The deputies urged the Government of Bahrain to re-freeze the death penalty and to ensure that victims of human rights violations receive rehabilitation in accordance with the UN General Assembly resolution of 18 December 2017.

 The letter pointed out that this issue will be discussed by the European Parliament in the absence of a convincing response to what is contained therein.

The letter is the result of a human rights effort by the European Center for Democracy and Human Rights (ECDHR), a human rights organization dedicated to promoting human rights in the Gulf region, based in Brussels.
