Bahrain Mirror: Sheikh Maytham Al-Salman, Head of Religious Freedom Unit in the Bahrain Human Rights Observatory (BHRO), said that a Bahraini court held its first hearing session on Monday (August 22, 2016) against the detained Shiite cleric Sheikh Imad Al-Shaala.

The authorities charged Al-Shaala with illegal assembly over the sit-in held in front of the spiritual leader Sheikh Isa Qassim' house since June 20, protesting over the decision to revoke his citizenship.

The court adjourned Al-Shaala's session until August 30, with his continued detention.

It is to mention that the authorities summoned Al-Shaala on August 9 and decided to detain him to present him to the Public Prosecution. However, on the following day, the prosecution decided to arrest him for 15 days pending investigation.
