Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's ninth minor criminal court, presided over by judge Hussain Al-Shaikh and Mohammad Al-Harban as secretariat, set August 31, 2016 as a date to issue its verdict against the cases of two Shiite clerics, Sayed Yassine Al-Musawi and Sheikh Azizi Al-Khadran, with their continued detention.

The authorities accuse Al-Musawi and Al-Khadran of assembling, based on their participation in the open sit-in protest in front of Sheikh Isa Qassim's house in Diraz since June 20, after the authorities revoked his citizenship.

The authorities have launched the most severe campaign against opposition and Shia majority since March 2011. They toughened the sentence against opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman, revoked the citizenship of spiritual leader Sheikh Isa Qassim, arrested prominent human rights activist Nabeel Rajab, banned activists from leaving the country, arrested and summoned dozens of Shiite clerics.
