Urgent Action update: Death sentences quashed, retrial ordered

On 22 October 2018, Bahrain’s Cassation Court overturned the death sentences it had confirmed in 2015 against Mohamed Ramadhan Issa Ali Hussain and Hussain Ali Moosa Hussain Mohamed, and returned their cases to the Appeal Court for retrial.


Take action.


Please write immediately in English, Arabic or your own language:

  • Urging the Bahraini authorities to commute all death sentences and establish an official moratorium on executions;
  • Urging them to ensure that the retrial of both men follows proceedings that fully comply with international fair trial standards and exclude the use of evidence obtained under torture, and without resort to the death penalty;
  • Urging them to promptly, adequately and effectively investigate their allegations of torture and other ill-treatment.
