54-Member Terror Cell Busted in Bahrain

Manama, Chief of Bahrain’s Terror Crime Prosecution Advocate General Ahmed Al Hammadi has revealed the existence of a terrorist organisation comprising 54 members, Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reported on Saturday.

The organisation includes 12 defendants in Iran and Iraq, another one in Germany and 41, including the 10 convicts who had escaped from prison, in Bahrain.

Al Hammadi added that 25 members of the cell who had carried out acts of terror had been arrested and that the investigations by the Public Prosecution were still going on.

“The Public Prosecution had received a report from the General Director of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science on the search and investigation efforts regarding the escape of 10 convicts from the Reform and Rehabilitation Centre in Jaw on January 1, 2017 and which resulted in the death of a policeman from the prison guards force,” Al Hammadi told BNA.

“The investigations revealed that the movements of the terrorists to other countries were coordinated by one of the cell leaders based in Germany. He made the arrangements for several members to go to Iran and Iraq to receive training in the use of explosives and firearms at the Revolutionary Guard camps ahead of carrying out their terrorist crimes in Bahrain,” BNA quoted him as saying.

The Bahraini Advocate General said that the investigations and the confessions of the suspects revealed the facts about the establishment of the terrorist organisation and its composition as well as how the fugitives in Iran and Iraq communicated with its members in the Kingdom in the prison and outside to recruit other elements and provide them with explosives, firearms and ammunition of various kinds that had been smuggled into the country and provided them with the necessary funds.
