Bahrain traces ‘terror funds’
Manama, August 22, 2010
Members of an organised network arrested in Bahrain recently admitted providing groups with financial support to incite them to violence and acts of sabotage in various parts of the country, a security source said.
They confessed to receiving funds and donations from religious scholars and businessmen under various covers, which they allegedly used to help the groups commit heinous acts.
The groups were instigated by the organised network to tarnish Bahrain's reputation abroad by committing terrorist acts, spreading chaos and targeting innocent people's lives, freedoms and property, the source said.
The suspects have been arrested in accordance with Law 58 of 2006 pertaining to the protection of society from terrorist acts and will be referred to the Public Prosecution in due course, said the source, stressing lawbreakers will face deterring measures.
The source also warned anyone attempting to expose the security system to danger aiming to illegally instigate public opinion will face legal action.
Meanwhile, Bahrain has warned Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states of plans by armed groups to commit acts of sabotage in these countries in the event of a military strike against Iran over its nuclear programme, according to a report issued by Kuwait. – TradeArabia News Service
