TEHRAN, May 30 (ICANA) – A Bahraini opposition spokesman said that lifting the emergency law in Bahrain while the al-Khalifa regime has intensified its crimes against the Bahraini people is just a "puppet show" run by Manama to free itself from growing crisis and international criticism.

Opposition Party Dismisses Lifting of Emergency Law by Bahrain Regime as "Puppet Show"

"Lifting the emergency law is a puppet show since the threats and suppressions of the al-Khalifa regime still continue and no one can speak against the ruling regime," Secretary-General of Bahrain's Khalas (Freedom) Movement and spokesman of Bahrain's February 14 Revolution Abdul Raouf al-Shayeb told FNA on Monday.

Reminding that the Al-Khalifa is one of the 38 regimes which violate the freedom of speech, he said the Manama regime doesn't even issue the needed permission for the British and the US reporters to cover the events in Bahrain, while the Bahraini journalists who have released the realities in the country have been detained and tortured.

Al-Shayeb underlined the Bahraini people's resolve to continue their demonstrations against the ruling system, and invited the Bahraini nation and political parties to gather at Lolo (Martyrs) square this Friday to stage their strongest protest against the al-Khalifa regime.

The Bahraini government imposed the emergency law in mid-March as it battled to contain street protests inspired by other uprisings and revolutions sweeping across the Middle-East early this year. Yet, the government has announced that it plans to end the rule of the emergency law over the country. The decision, which goes into effect on June 1, two weeks earlier than planned, comes as 21 opposition figures and political activists, accused with attempting to overthrow the regime, go on trial in a special court established under the emergency law.

Since mid-February, thousands of anti-government protesters in Bahrain have poured into the streets, calling for an end to the ruling of Al Khalifa dynasty, which has ruled the country for almost forty years.

On March 13, Saudi-led forces were dispatched to the Persian Gulf island at Manama's request to quell the countrywide protests.

Since the deployment of Saudi troops in Bahrain, Manama has shown itself capable of great brutality in suppressing the anti-regime protesters.

Scores of protesters have been killed and many others arrested and sent to unknown locations during Manama's violent crackdown on protesters. A number of the deaths have occurred under torture.

Regime forces have also raided dozens of mosques, schools, sacred sites and even graves in persisting efforts to suppress all opposition.
