Bahrain: Joint letter calling on the King to commute the death sentences of Ali al-Arab and Ahmed al-Malali
The organizations urge Bahrain's king, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, to commute the death sentences of Ali Al-Arab and Ahmed Al-Malali, who have exhausted all legal remedies available to them after the Court of Cassation rejected their appeal on 6 May 2019. The organizations oppose the death penalty in all cases, regardless of who is accused, the crime, their guilt or innocence, or the method of execution. The cases of Mr. Ali Al-Arab and Mr. Ahmed Al-Malali raise additional concerns, however, given the allegations that their confessions were obtained under torture and their right to a fair trial was violated.
