On November 7, Bahrain revoked the citizenship of 31 activists. An interior ministry statement announced it. Doing so coincided with more state-sponsored violence and arrests.
Prominent opposition figures affected include:
(1) Saaed Shehabi, a London-based Bahraini political activist and Bahrain Freedom Movement member.
(2) Former MP Jalal Fairooz.
(3) Hasan Mushaima, Haq Movement head. It's a high-profile Bahraini opposition group.
Revocations were ordered for violating Article 10 Bahrain's Citizenship Act. It permits targeting individuals accused of threatening state security.
Justice in Bahrain is none at all. Activists wanting to live free may end up dying for it. That's how police states operate. Bahrain is one of the worst.
