Mattar Ibrahim Mattar arrested

Mattar Ibrahim Mattar, a parliamentary representative of the Al-Wefaq party who often talked to the international media about the current repression in Bahrain, was arrested one day after giving an interview to Al-Jazeera in which he said there was a danger that opposition leaders could be arrested. He was brought before a military court without prior notification on 12 June and was charged with openly calling for the government’s overthrow, spreading tendentious rumours and participating in illegal demonstrations.
