US Puppet Regime in Bahrain under fire for torturing Political Prisoners

Bahraini Political Parties Blast Al-Khalifa Regime for Torturing Activists
19 February, 2013 – FARS

TEHRAN (FNA)- Different Bahraini parties and political groups in a statement lashed out at the al-Khalifa regime for imprisoning and torturing activists, and dismissed the Manama regime’s recent accusations against protestors as baseless.

“The announcement by (Bahraini) security forces on finding a ‘terrorist cell’ is not something new and many similar announcements have been previously made which later came to be known nothing more than baseless accusations as most of the confessions had been taken under torture,” the Lebanese TV channel, al-Manar, quoted the statement as saying.

The Bahraini political groups underlined the need for holding a serious national dialogue in a bid to bring the country out of political impasse after two years and this should be done on the basis of the principle that “people are source of all powers”.

“It is now time the structure of all security apparatuses were reformed and their approaches were changed in a bid to move in line with citizens’ equal rights and respect for human rights … ,” the statement read.

Last week, hundreds of thousands of Bahraini protesters took to the streets in the capital Manama and other cities across the Persian Gulf island to mark the second anniversary of their uprising against the Al-Khalifa regime in February 2011, calling on the country’s rulers to step down.

More than 300,000 protesters poured to the streets across the tiny Persian Gulf island country on Friday in a bid to celebrate the beginning of the third year of their revolution against the al-Khalifa regime which started on February 14, 2011.

The massive population of protesters reiterated their opposition to dictatorship in the tiny Persian Gulf country, and called on the al-Khalifa regime to step down.

The al-Khalifa regime’s security forces killed two protesters during popular protests on Thursday. …more
