Human rights activists in Bahrain said that the number of people whose nationalities were revoked by Al-Khalifa regime reached 253 people, stressing that such act violates the international law.

During a conference in al-Wefaq group headquarters in Zinj, Activists discussed “Revoking nationality according to Law and Human Rights”, Bahraini media reported.

“Revoking nationality everywhere is considered as executing the civil situation of the person. That what happens when the person suddenly becomes with no nationality,” activists said during the conference.

Al-Wasat daily quoted Hadi al-Mousawi, the head of Al-Wefaq’s human rights and freedoms department, as saying that the number of people whose nationalities were revoked reached 253.

Mousawi urged the Bahraini authorities to review such rulings, noting that the nationalities were revoked according to a decision by interior minister or a court ruling.

“We can appeal against all these rulings,” Mousawi said, according to the daily.
“There are a lot of those, whose nationalities were revoked, were not accused or even questioned,” Mousawi added, stressing that these people did not commit any crime.

For his part, member of The Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR), Hussein Radhi, said that people whose nationalities were revoked are suffering because of such rulings.
