SRW:Bahrain expands anti-Shia laws

 

Shia Rights Watch International Organization have published an article on the expansion of anti-Shia laws under alleged  pretexts of countering terrorism.

The rights organization have said in the article that “the passage of these types of “anti-terrorist” laws have opened the doors to legalizing criminalization of basic rights and freedoms of society such as political dissent and the freedoms of speech and assembly.”

After a series of popular anti-government protests began in 2011, the Bahraini government began a systematic crackdown on protesters and Shia clerics who had organized calls to abolish the monarchy and reform the government. 

Now, a group of organized citizens gathering together to raise their concerns about abuses of power can be targeted by the law as “terrorists” for threatening the authorities.
