افتراضي Bahrain to go ahead with medics trial

The Bahraini government is still proceeding with a high-profile case
against medics who treated wounded protesters during an uprising last
year, despite a prosecutor's statement suggesting most of the charges
would be dropped, the justice minister has said.
"At the end of the day, the last decision will be at the court, the
court has to acquit or punish. Until a final judgment, all of them are
accused," Sheikh Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa, the justice minister, told a
news conference on Tuesday.

pursue charges against only five of the 20 medics involved in the case.
He would transfer the other cases to a professional tribunal, the
statement said.

"It looks like various people are making decisions in the Bahrain

groups said the medics were being punished for helping civilians who had
been attacked by state security forces during anti-government

The case is technically a retrial. It was moved to a civil court
after a military court in September sentenced the 20 doctors and other
medical staff to jail terms of up to 15 years on charges including
incitement to overthrow the government and attempting to occupy a

Some of the doctors took part in a protest inside the Salmaniya
hospital grounds and spoke to television channels from inside the
hospital. Government witnesses have said they were planning to stockpile
weapons and take hostages.

Michael Posner, the US assistant secretary of state, said last month
that Bahrain should seek "alternatives to criminal prosecution" in the

Bahrain is a key ally to Washington in its conflict with Iran over
its nuclear programme, hosting the US navy's Fifth Fleet. But the United
States is trying to end continuing violence by pushing the government
to talk to the opposition.

Clashes occur daily between riot police and youths in Shia Muslim districts.

The Sunni-dominated government describes the youths, who throw petrol
bombs at police, as vandals and says opposition groups should do more
to rein them in.
