Bahrain: Further Information: Highest Court Upholds Death Sentences

, Index number: MDE 11/2734/2020

On 13 July 2020, the Court of Cassation in Bahrain reaffirmed the death sentences of Mohamed Ramadhan and Hussain Moosa, despite evidence that the men were tortured during their interrogations. On 22 October 2018, the same court had overturned their death sentences which it had confirmed in 2015 and returned their cases to the Appeal Court for re-examination, based on new evidence. The Case will now be sent to the King of Bahrain who has the authority to ratify the sentence, commute it or grant a pardon.
