Amnesty International has today expressed serious concern about recent developments in Bahrain, namely the new charges brought against the leader of the now-dissolved Al-Wefaq National Islamic Society, Sheikh Ali Salman; the dissolution on appeal of the National Democratic Action Society (Wa’ad); the resumption of trials of civilians before military courts; the ongoing trial of human rights defender Nabeel Rajab and the continued targeting of human rights activist Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei’s family.
