Bahrain News and Events / BAHRAINI PHOTOGRAPHER SENTENCED TO TEN YEARS IN PRISON
« Last post by Anna on December 02, 2015, 03:20:58 AM »

A Bahraini criminal court has sentenced freelance photographer Sayed Ahmed Al Mousawi to 10 years in prison on a terrorism charge and has stripped him of his nationality. Reporters Without Borders condemns this arbitrary trial of a journalist who just covered pro-democracy demonstrations.

Accused of giving SIM cards to “terrorist” demonstrators and taking photos of anti-government protests, Mousawi was finally convicted yesterday in a trial that began nearly a year ago and had repeatedly been postponed since February. His lawyer said he would appeal against his conviction.

“The threats and intimidation campaigns against professional journalists and citizen journalists have just one aim – to use ‘terrorism’ as a pretext for suppressing all criticism of an authoritarian regime,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Middle East desk.

“It is outrageous that a journalist has been treated like a terrorist. Arbitrary arrests of peaceful dissidents, systematic torture and impunity have turned Bahrain into a dangerous country for those who speak out. We condemn Mousawi’s arbitrary detention and call on the authorities to overturn his conviction.”

Many Bahrainis have been stripped of their citizenship this year. Those targeted include not only government opponents and Islamic State members but also doctors and journalists.

The recipient of many international awards, Mousawi was arrested without a warrant at his home in the town of Diraz on 10 February 2014, when police confiscated his camera and other electronic apparatus.

His trial did not begin until December 2014 and, according to his family, he was repeatedly tortured in detention, especially during interrogation at the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department.

A total of eight journalists and five citizen-journalists are currently detained in Bahrain, according to a Reporters Without Borders tally.

The trial of the leading satirical blogger known as Takrooz is scheduled to being on 25 November. Arrested on 18 June 2014 at Manama airport, he is charged with inciting anti-government hatred and using expressions liable to incite sectarianism.

The appeal of Ali Al-Mearaj, a blogger held since 6 January 2014, is due to be heard on 1 December. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison on 8 April 2014 on charges of “misusing information technology” and insulting the king in connection with his management of an opposition website.

Bahrain is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Bahrain News and Events / 16000 illegal workers were deported from Oman
« Last post by Anna on November 17, 2015, 06:15:35 AM »

Over 16,000 illegal workers were deported from Oman recently. 12,000 more were able to legalise their labour status, according to the Ministry of Manpower.

It was an attempt to regulate the labour market in Oman. Illegal workers were offered amnesty to leave the country without being fined if they registered by October.

A ministry official told Gulf News that the number of illegal foreign workers has doubled since 2010.

Amnesties are a common practice in Oman, with previous pardons being granted in 2005, 2007 and 2010.

Oman has intensified its campaign against infiltrators and illegal foreign workers with weekly inspections and raids.

Oman’s expatriate workforce stood at 1,614,545 in May, according to statistics issued by the National Centre for Statistics and Information (NCSI).

The majority of the workforce are Indians with 1,614,545 workers and Bangladeshis – 557,606. Reports have suggested there could be around 50,000 undocumented workers as well, mostly from Bangladesh.

On Sunday November 15th, 162 illegal workers were arrested during raids in Khasab, Bukha and Diba. Law enforcement officials say they will step up their crackdown.

The crackdown is particularly important now during a time when many Omanis have lost their jobs due to the slump in oil prices. The government is under pressure to free up more jobs for citizens.

Bahrain News and Events / Bahrain jails 12 convicted bombers for life, revokes citizenship
« Last post by Anna on November 16, 2015, 05:54:38 AM »
A Bahraini criminal court sentenced 12 people for life and revoked their citizenship after finding them guilty of carrying out bomb attacks on police, a senior judicial official said in a statement late on Sunday.

Evidence showed that the defendants, tried at the High Criminal Court, were "directly linked" to six bombings carried out between 2013 and 2014, advocate general Ahmed Al-Hammadi said in a statement carried by Bahrain News Agency.

The official said formal charges were made against the defendants after evidence gathered including fingerprints, "which directly matched five of the suspects to explosives and bomb-making materials found in a house in Saar," the statement said.

The defendants had full and legal rights to appeal, the statement added.

The Sunni Muslim-led island kingdom, which hosts the U.S. Fifth Fleet in the Gulf, has experienced sporadic unrest since mass protests in 2011 led by majority Shi'ites demanding reforms and a bigger role in government. The government denies opposition charges it discriminates against Shi'ites.

Bahrain says the opposition has a sectarian agenda and is backed by Shi'ite power Iran, a charge Shi'ite groups deny.

Bahrain Guide and Photos / RATNAKARA RITUALS in Bahrain

Have you tried RATNAKARA RITUALS in Bahrain?

Ratnakara is an ancient term for “ocean” and “repository of jewels” came from Indian.  The two exclusive rituals are created by Ila, a beyond organic luxury skin care brand from England.

Central to Ila’s healing potential is the high natural energy present in each and every ingredient. The purity and the high levels of vibrational energy are absorbed by the skin, bringing powerful healing benefits to the subtle energies within our bodies. These exclusive rituals are focusing on the essence of Ratnakara’s authentic healing journey or the flow of chi, or energy meridians.

SEA OF QI RITUAL

The Sea of Qi begins with an anti-inflammatory foot reflex sequence using a blissful body scrub and rose damascena body cream for glowing radiance. You are taken on a journey of fluidity where the whole body is encompassed with rhythmic massage movements. Cardamom and patchouli help open your energy centers and soothe your nervous system while jasmine and neroli encourage the continuity of flow and release of negativity. The warm Himalayan salt poultices enable the body to be receptive to healing. Sound then plays an important role in deepening this experience, promoting balance through the entire being.

GATE OF VITALITY RITUAL

The ritual begins with an inner peace foot exfoliation and opening connection that helps quieten the mind and center the guest. A full body meridian flow massage with inner peace oil enables the release of physical tension, the activation of energy channels, the clearing of blockages while also bringing warmth and vitality to every part of the body. The main focus of this ritual is the application of an adaptogenic herbal pack which flushes the kidneys of all their impurities. The use of warm poultices on significant acupressure points along the central channel reduces stress and fear, balances the digestive system, boosts energy levels and calms the spirit. Zone therapy to the feet, hands and four central points closes the Gate of Vitality leaving you restored and at peace.
