Al-Khalifa Interior Minister should be arrested, tried for bloody melee that has killed scores since 2011

Bahraini Human Rights Group Urges Trial of Al-Khalifa Interior Minister
21 October, 2012 – Shia Post

Bahrain’s human rights association called on the International Court of Justice to try Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa for his direct involvement in the massacre of peaceful protestors in the tiny Persian Gulf country.

The human rights group’s demand came as anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February 2011, calling for an end to the al-Khalifa dynasty.

Violence against the defenseless people escalated after a Saudi-led conglomerate of police, security and military forces from the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council (PGCC) member states – Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and Qatar – were dispatched to the tiny Persian Gulf kingdom on March 13, 2011, to help Manama crack down on peaceful protestors.

In a latest development a bomb attack on Thursday killed one policeman and injured another after clashes between protesters and the security services in a village near the capital which provided the government with a pretext to further arrest the Bahraini people. Bahraini security forces surrounded the village and increased their suppressive measures in the region.

Bahrain’s al-Vafa al-Islami stream condemned the move, and underlined, “The Bahraini regime’s story about the killing of a policemen in al-Akar village is an excuse to assume the extensive deracination of people as permitted.”

After the escalation of uprisings in Bahrain, tens of protesters have been killed by al-Khalifa’s security forces, hundreds have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured. …source
