Bahraini Shiite cleric interrogated by Manama’s security services

Bahraini Shiite cleric Sayed Majeed Al Meshaal was interrogated by Manama’s security services on Friday after being summoned for questioning.

There is no word yet on why Al Meshaal was questioned.

The cleric spent nearly a month in detention in February of this year after being accused of ‘inciting hatred against the regime’.

That arrest came a mere 48 hours following Sayed Al Meshaal’s completion of a two-and-a-half year prison term over a separate set of charges.

In July 2016, he was jailed for participating in a round-the-clock vigil around the home of Bahrain’s highest religious authority, Sheikh Isa Qassim.

Sayed Al Meshaal once chaired the now-dissolved Islamic Scholars Council, which was one of Bahrain’s leading Shiite religious institutions.
