Bahrain Mirror: Al-Wefaq Deputy Secretary-General Sheikh Hussein Al-Daihi said "every bullet that claimed the lives of innocent victims through executing death sentences reinforced the popular convictions of the need for radical political change."

Al-Daihi tweets come within a popular campaign Bahrainis launched on Wednesday against death sentences in Bahrain. "Death sentences in Bahrain came following the rights movement as did the lengthy prison sentences that did not stop. The regime's aims are clear: stopping people from continuing their just demands and breaking their steadfastness."

"These sentences are also the result of the absence of the principle of political partnership, which in its absence corrupts the judiciary," he said.

"Throughout the history of the rights movement, there have been dozens of crimes committed against Bahrainis inside and outside prisons, which led to a number of martyrs and victims of torture. We have not heard of a single verdict against one of the perpetrators, while advocates of freedom and political justice have been sentenced to death."

"The platforms and guns of execution do not achieve deluded political stability, and every shot that claimed lives of innocent martyrs through the unjust execution has reinforced the popular convictions of the need for radical political change," he stated
