The spokesman of Iranian foreign ministry said that Bahraini authorities should put an end to unjust and repressive measures against their own people.

Iran Press/Iran news: The foreign ministry spokesman, Bahram Ghassemi in a statement on Tuesday also condemned the recent upholding of life sentences against opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman and two other Bahraini dissidents by an appeals court.

Bahram Ghassemi added that the unjust sentences based on false accusations against them shows that the Bahraini government, with the support of some foreign countries, is seeking to silence any voice of peaceful protest in the country, Mehr News Agency reported.

The spokesman criticized the silence of the international community against the inhumane actions of the Bahraini government and also referred to the hypocritical position of the United States, saying “Through its arms sales and full political support, the United States has given the green light to the Bahraini government to suppress its own people, and any opposition to the ruling regime.”

The spokesman advised the Bahraini authorities to give up relying on foreign support, joining failed coalitions, buying security from abroad, and instead called on them to resolve the crisis in the country through entering a real and serious dialogue and listening to the legitimate demands of its people and ending its repressive measures.

Since February 14, 2011, Bahraini people have been holding peaceful protest rallies on an almost daily basis, demanding that the Al-Khalifah family relinquish power and allow a just system representing all the people of Bahrain to be established.

On March 5, 2017, Bahrain’s parliament approved the trial of civilians in military tribunals in a measure blasted by human rights campaigners as being tantamount to imposition of an undeclared martial law countrywide. 201/ 211 /101
