Bahrain al Khalifa regime set-up Bassiouni “fact-finding” mission to exonerate Murderers not to reform abuse

Human Rights Activist: Al-Khalifa Seeking to Exonerate Murderers
26 November, 2012 – FARS

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Al-Khalifa regime set up the fact-fining committee led by Mohammed Sharif Basyouni in a bid to exonerate the agents who have killed protesters, a member of Bahrain’s Center for Human Rights said.

“The regime’s refusal to implement the contents of Basyouni committee’s report formed at the order of the (Bahraini) king indicates that the goal pursued by establishing this committee was not settlement of the country’s crisis, but to exonerate the agents involved with the massacre and clampdown on people,” Fallah al-Rabie told FNA on Monday.

He also blamed the Bahraini regime for escalation of crisis in the country, and said the regime still continues “torturing” prisoners, “clamping down” on popular protests and “revoking citizenship” of legal and political activists.

Some international organizations, including the Amnesty International and the UN, have blamed the Al-Khalifa regime for killing and detaining activists and failing to deliver on its promise of reforms.

Security forces have even intensified arrests since the start of the holy month of Muharram.

Muharram, a religious month is commemorated by Muslims across the world annually. The holy month which started on Friday bans people from killing, arresting, committing any wrong doing or crime.

The forces have also insulted the religious slogans chanted by people during the holy month.

Anti-government protesters have been holding peaceful demonstrations across Bahrain since mid-February 2011, calling for an end to the Al Khalifa dynasty’s over-40-year rule, end of discrimination, establishment of justice and a democratically-elected government as well as freedom of detained protesters.

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.

So far, tens of people have been killed, hundreds have gone missing and thousands of others have been injured. …source
