A Bahraini court adjourned till June 16 the trial of the Secretary General of al-Wefaq opposition movement, Sheikh Ali Salman, who has been in prison since December 2014.

The Wednesday trial was the fifth hearing held so far on charges against the prominent cleric.

The judge refused to hear remarks by Salman’s team of lawyers and declared the end of the court session while the attorneys were speaking, Press TV cited reports as saying.

Salman was arrested in late December 2014 over alleged anti-regime incitements.
According to Bahraini prosecutor Nayef Mahmud, the 49-year-old cleric is charged with “promoting regime change by force, threats, and illegal means, and of insulting the Interior Ministry publicly.”

He has strongly denied allegations against him.

In April, Abdullah al-Shamlawi, one of Salman's lawyers, also said the case against his client was politically-motivated and lacked any legitimate legal basis.
