Bahraini Police Refuses Release of Sheikh al-Moumin, Raises New Charges

The Samaheej police station in Bahrain raised on Wednesday (September 28, 2016) new charges against the Khayf Mosque Imam, Sheikh Isa al-Mou’min, aiming at hindering the court decision to release him.

The court had decided to release Sheikh al-Moumin on a bail of 500 dinars, and adjourn his trial until October 24, 2016.

Al-Mou’min faces charges of inciting hatred against the regime, over a speech he gave in the Khayf Mosque, in which he criticized the violations practiced by the Bahraini authorities against the Bahrainis and Shia majority in particular.
