Danish activists to be retried in Bahrain
04 May 2012
Danish-Bahraini activist Abdulhadi al-Khawaja will be retried in Bahrain along with 20 others, according to his lawyer. Al-Khawaja, who was imprisoned for life last year after been found guilty of plotting against the state, has been on hunger strike since February.
“The Appeals Court has accepted that the case should be retried because al-Khawaja did not get a fair trial,” said a spokeswoman from the office of Mohamed al-Jishi, al-Khawaja’s lawyer. “The only proof the prosecution had against him was the admission he provided during torture,” she added.
Reneging on a promise made just weeks earlier, Bahraini authorities have denied visas to representatives of several free expression organizations who planned to travel to the kingdom next week to assess press and free speech conditions: here.
Reporters Without Borders condemns the Bahraini government’s last-minute withdrawal of the permission it had previously given for a visit by a delegation of NGOs that defend freedom of expression. Spurious grounds were used to prevent the visit, which had been scheduled to take place from 5 to 10 May: here.
