Trial of ‪Bahrain activist Nabeel rajab ‘politically motivated’

A political commentator says the ongoing trial of prominent Bahraini rights activist Nabeel Rajab is illegal and “politically motivated.”

Jalal Fairooz told Press TV that the Bahraini regime was targeting Rajab because of his “human rights advocacy.”

 The Bahraini authorities’ anger is understandable as Rajab has exposed their crimes and “gross human rights violations” during his recent tour to Europe, the analyst said.

Commenting on the Bahraini justice system, Fairooz said that several criminal police officers who killed dissidents on the streets or inside jails were being freed while the top human rights activist has been jailed just for posting comments on a social networking website.

Rajab has been accused of posting tweets in which he said members of Bahraini security forces are fighting alongside terrorists in Syria.

A Bahraini court has remanded Rajab in custody after the first hearing in his trial ended on charges of insulting officials. On Sunday, the court adjourned the trial of Rajab, who is the director of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR), until October 29.

Fairooz concluded that the Bahraini regime is becoming increasingly scared of Rajab’s international credibility and reputation.

Rajab was under the regime’s custody in Jaw prison in eastern Bahrain from July 9, 2012 until May this year.

The United Nations has condemned the Bahraini government for arresting Rajab. The New York based Human Rights Watch (HRW) also called on the Manama regime to release Rajab, saying that Bahrain wishes to “silence its critics” with such actions.
