Bahrain sentences soccer player to 10 years prison
MANAMA, Bahrain — The defense lawyer of a player for Bahrain’s national soccer team says his client has been sentenced along with eight others to 10 years in prison on charges of burning a police station.
Lawyer Mohamed el-Motawa says the nine were also found guilty of participating in an illegal gathering and possessing firebombs.
El-Motawa says 20-year-old Hakeem el-Oraybi was playing in a televised match when the November 2012 incident took place in which dozens of Shiite protesters attacked a police station in the capital, Manama. El-Oraybi was detained for four months after the attack.
Bahraini Shiites are demanding greater rights from the Gulf Arab nation’s Sunni rulers.
El-Oraybi is currently in neighboring Qatar with the Bahraini team for a match. His lawyer said Tuesday el-Oraybi will likely be arrested upon return.
Washington, D.C. – Following today’s news that the Bahraini government is suspending the National Dialogue reconciliation talks, Human Rights First’s Brian Dooley issued the following statement: “The suspension of the National Dialogue in Bahrain should serve a starting point for real negotiations with the opposition movement. The National Dialogue, which excluded key imprisoned opposition leaders, was unable to provide solutions to Bahrain’s human rights crisis. It is time for real political talks involving these activists who are currently in prison”: here.
