Petition calling for an end to death sentences in Bahrain

Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain, in cooperation with the International Peace Bureau, launched a petition on the death penalty in Bahrain, aimed at demanding a moratorium on the death sentences

Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain, in cooperation with the International Peace Bureau, launched a petition on the death penalty in Bahrain, aimed at demanding a moratorium on the death sentences of the 12 detainees who face imminent execution.

The organization stated on its website that the Bahraini regime ended in 2017 the moratorium on the application of the death penalty, which lasted for seven years, after three people were executed by gunfire, and since then, six people have been executed in cases of a political nature.

The organization added that there are 12 people at imminent risk of execution after they have exhausted all legal remedies, explaining that all the death sentences involved several common features that violate international human rights standards, including confessions extracted under torture and unfair trials.

It pointed out that the executions carried out, based on past experiences, were carried out by the Bahraini regime on the dates of Western holidays, such as Christmas, New Year and the summer holidays, which necessitates the revival of the responsibility of every human being to promote and respect human rights around the world and break the silence regarding violations of basic rights.**************
