Dear UK’s Foreign Secretary William Hague, facts you may not know!

In response to UK’s foreign Secretary William Hague who expressed his concerns about sentences on a group of medics between 5 and 15 years in prison, upheld life sentences against Bahraini opposition leaders and passed one sentence of death penalty by a Bahraini Special Tribunal court.

First, the medics you are concern about are criminals occupied the biggest central medical complex in Bahrain the “Salmaniya Medical Complex” (SMC)  Treated patients on sectarian, racist basis that caused the death of Anas Kamaal Salim, 4 years and Fatma Al Abbasi, 15 years died because ambulances did not rescue them. The medics you are concern about kidnapped and tortured innocent expats were living in peace with everyone for decades.

A male staff nurse working at Salmaniya Medical Complex witnessed the occupation of the SMC said I was doing duty in the ‘B’ room when at about 8 pm some Indians and Pakistani patients were brought to the room. They were very badly beaten up and they were continually being beaten while in the room. I was very scared since I too am an Indian and all the other staff working in the room was also Indian. There were many Bahraini religious men who were there and spitting and beating these poor patients. We were clearly told not to help them or we would suffer the same consequence. I wanted to help them but I was afraid. I saw one man who often came to the hospital and taking morphine and tramal for headache and flank pain. He was with these religious men wearing black clothes. He came to me and pulled me from my collar and told me get out of the room or I will be hurt. He pulled me to the side and started spitting and hitting one of the Pakistani patients. He had some steel object in his hand and he used it to hit these men. I was angry but also scared. I wanted to help but could do nothing”.

Another witness testified saying:  

We would like to express and report our concerns about the brutal torture carried by some doctors and nurses, where the protesters turned the spaces that surround the hospital into a political agenda and theatre of drama. SMC was occupied by some doctors followed and supported by a nursing group.
“They were using the bags of blood that are available in the blood bank to smear some people with these bags whom they do not –in fact- suffer from any injuries to mislead the media and send wrong messages to the world”.

“Most of the patients received during these incidents were malingerers who were supported by shia nurses and doctors whereas a handful of them had pellet wounds. Any person who even had a scratch or even less than that were eligible to be rushed inside the hospital by ambulances and private cars at full speed and to be carried by a handful of other people giving them impression of god knows what”.
The medics or the right description for them, the criminals at SMC faced their fair destiny after turning SMC to hell by turning it to political arena and lying about Bahrain to international media during the crisis from February to March.

“The anti-government protesters were camped outside the emergency and the so called clerics would give them a speech every night. These speeches were broadcasted through multimedia projectors. On one particular night I was surprised to see a speech video of Iran where a cleric was speaking in Persian and someone else was translating”

“Every evening there used to be great speeches made at the parking. Clerics and political leaders calling to their people to fight on. Telling them what they would be rewarded well”

Second, the opposition leaders are the plotters to topple the leadership of the Kingdom of Bahrain. Hasan Moshamea, Saeed Shehab and others were accused of:

1 – Establishing and managing a terrorist group to overthrow and change the state constitution with joining that group.
2 – Collaboration with a terrorist organization abroad, working for a foreign country in order to commit hostile acts against the Kingdom of Bahrain.
3 – They attempt to change the state constitution and rules of royal power by force.
4 - Promoting for the change of the political system in the Kingdom by force.
5 – Collecting and giving money to the terrorist group knowing exercise terrorist activity.
6 – The possession of publications that promote the change of the political system in the Kingdom by force by using illegal means.
7 – Promoting false news and spreading malicious propaganda that harm public security and interest.
8 - incitement of hatred against people.
9 - Incitement to non-compliance with the law.
10 - Organizing and participating in unlicensed protests without notifying the authority.

I guess and expect or definitely you know the tight relations between plotters on Bahrain and Iran especially those are living in London. For example, Saeed Shehab who was exposed by This is London newspaper wrote on 30th August, 2011 “Patrick Mercer, a Conservative MP and security expert, said: "This man's connections with Iran are extremely concerning and embarrassing to those who have praised him as a credible voice on Bahrain."

“A Standard investigation found that the offices near Old Street where Dr Shehabi worked for 13 years are owned by the "Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran".

According to Terrorism Act 2000 in UK defines terrorism as:

(1)In this Act “terrorism” means the use or threat of action where
(a)the action falls within subsection (2),
(b)the use or threat is designed to influence the government or an international governmental organisation or to intimidate the public or a section of the public, and
(c)the use or threat is made for the purpose of advancing a political, religious, racial or ideological cause.

(2)Action falls within this subsection if it
(a)involves serious violence against a person,
(b)involves serious damage to property,
(c)endangers a person’s life, other than that of the person committing the action,
(d)creates a serious risk to the health or safety of the public or a section of the public, or
(e)is designed seriously to interfere with or seriously to disrupt an electronic system.

(3)The use or threat of action falling within subsection (2) which involves the use of firearms or explosives is terrorism whether or not subsection (1)(b) is satisfied.

(4)In this section—
(a)“action” includes action outside the United Kingdom,
(b)a reference to any person or to property is a reference to any person, or to property, wherever situated,
(c)a reference to the public includes a reference to the public of a country other than the United Kingdom, and
(d)“the government” means the government of the United Kingdom, of a Part of the United Kingdom or of a country other than the United Kingdom.

(5)In this Act a reference to action taken for the purposes of terrorism includes a reference to action taken for the benefit of a proscribed organisation.

So, by British law and according to what Bahrain faced from protesters during the crisis, whom UK’s foreign officer calling them opposition leader and medics are actually terrorists or by their new definition rioters.

Third, the death sentence is for the murdering of policeman Ahmad Ahmad Al Muraisi deliberately while he was on duty in Sitra. The most important thing it’s not the first time of such accident in Bahrain. The so called “peaceful protesters” killed policeman Majid Asghar in Karazaghan, 2008. In the 1990’s the same protesters killed Arif Albaloshi, Dura Albloshi and Ibrahim Al Saidi.

People of Bahrain can’t accept any more violence and crimes committed by rioters or terrorists in Bahrain by Hezbollah militias and the ignorance from foreign officials and international media of crimes done during the last crisis.

From the above, the sentences are fair enough and not disproportionate to the charges brought as they are for murdering and plotting on the kingdom of Bahrain.

Forth, during London riots PM David Cameron promised vigorous and wide-ranging measures to restore order and prevent riots erupting again on Britain's streets - including taking gang-fighting tips from American cities.   He also said "nothing should be off the table," including water cannons and plastic bullets. He said riot-hit businesses would receive help to get back on their feet, and promised to look to the United States for help in fighting the street gangs he blamed for helping spark Britain's riots Furthermore, PM David Cameron chose Former New York Police Chief Bill Bratton to advise the British government on gangs in the wake of rioting in London. 

The Metropolitan Police arrested more than 2,000 people in connection with rioting and looting across London. Almost 1,500 people have appeared in court to answer riot-related charges and 70% of alleged offenders have been remanded in Custody.

Of the 1,500 offenders who have appeared in courts nationwide, more than 160 have already been sentenced and half of them jailed. According to a report from BBC on 25th August.
Jordan Blackshaw, 20 years, and Perry Sutcliffe-Keenan, 22 years were jailed for four years for posting messages on Facebook inciting people to create disorder in their home towns. Their defence lawyers and civil rights groups criticised "disproportionate" sentences as official figures show nearly 1,300 suspects have been brought before the courts.

Sally Ireland, policy director of the law reform organisation Justice, said: "Some instances are completely out of all proportion. The Guardian reported.

At the end, why did you give yourself the right to do whatever you can do to end riots and ignoring our rights to live in peace and deal with riots within the law? Bahrainis have the right to live in peace and force law on rioters and terrorists threaten our safety and security. The people of Bahrain refuse any foreign interventions to put pressures on Bahrain government to influence the sentences on judiciary system as independent judiciary system is the core of democracy and real democratic countries.
