Bahraini court sentences Sheikh Essa Qasim

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - According to Al-manar TV channel, Sheikh Essa Qasim was fined to pay one thousand Dinars with a 3-milion Dinar of his property confiscated.

According to the court verdict, Sheikh Qasim’s decree of confinement has been suspended for 3 years.

With Bahrain established as country in 1971, Sheikh Essa Qasim, a spiritual leader of Bahrain’s revolution, returned to the country from Njaf ul-Ashraf, Iraq, and entered the parliament with a majority of votes until the parliament dissolved.

Bahrain Ministry accused Sheikh Qasim of abusing his position as a parliamentarian to "serve foreign interests and spread out sectarian violence”.

Anti-regime protesters have held demonstrations in Bahrain on an almost daily basis ever since a popular uprising began in the country on February 14, 2011. People have been demanding that the Al Khalifah dynasty relinquish power and a just system representing all Bahrainis be established. The regime has been cracking down on all dissent since then.
