Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain responded to the European Parliament resolution which condemned the human rights violation in Bahrain, saying that it contained "false allegations and fallacies that have nothing to do with reality".

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned on Thursday (March 11, 2021) the resolution issued by the European Parliament on human rights in Bahrain, citing false allegations and fallacies based on dishonest sources seeking to harm the Kingdom's reputation. 

The ministry expressed dismay at the resolution which was issued without communicating with the elected parliamentary institution and the competent authorities in the Kingdom of Bahrain, to verify the validity of such false allegations.

It pointed out that the resolution touched on issues that affect the identity and values of Bahraini society, which is an unacceptable transgression and a blatant interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom. 

It expressed its deep regret that the resolution blatantly overlooked the progress made by the Kingdom of Bahrain in the field of protecting and promoting human rights and ensuring basic freedoms, focusing only, instead, on limited cases without investigating them accurately.
