A Bahraini appeals court has upheld an earlier decision to dissolve the main Shia opposition group in the Persian Gulf country as the Manama regime presses ahead with its crackdown on critics despite widespread censure.

Back in June, a lower Bahraini court ordered the closure of al-Wefaq National Islamic Society’s offices.

One month later, the court ordered the dissolution of the group over alleged accusations of “harboring terrorism,” inciting violence and encouraging protests that threatened to spark sectarian strife. It further ruled that Wefaq’s funds must be seized by the Manama regime.
