Bahraini parties’ reaction to execution warrant of Nimr
Bahrain opposition parties urged the nation to stage demonstration for siding with Shia cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr against the tyrant rulers in this country.
Bahrain opposition parties urged people in the country to stage demonstration for siding with Shia cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr and voicing support for him against the House of Saud, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
In its recent released statement, the Islamic Wafa Shia opposition denounced Al Saud’s approval of the implementation of the death sentence on the featured religious cleric warning the regime of the consequences of carrying out the verdict.
Saudi Supreme Court and an appellate court had approved the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, and authorized the Saudi Interior Ministry to carry out the sentence previously handed down to the eminent cleric.
The execution warrant has been reportedly sent to the Saudi crown prince, Muhammad bin Naif bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, who is also the first deputy prime minister and the minister of interior of Saudi Arabia.
The warrant will now be sent to Saudi Arabia’s ruler Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud after the approval of the Interior Ministry.
The warrant must be approved by the Saudi monarch in order to be implemented. The execution of the Shia cleric can be carried out by the Interior Ministry without any prior warning if King Salman signs the order.
Nimr was attacked and arrested in the Qatif region of Eastern Province in July 2012, and has been charged with undermining the kingdom’s security, making anti-government speeches, and defending political prisoners. Nimr has denied the accusations.
