HRW said on Monday that the Manama regime may be about to enforce death sentences against activists Mohamed Ramadhan Issa and Hussain Ali Moosa.

Bahrain’s Court of Cassation upheld the death sentences against the two in 2015, accusing them of killing a policeman in a bomb explosion in the village of al-Dair in February 2014.

HRW said that the recent execution of three other Bahraini activists in a similar case raised concerns that King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah would approve the executions of Ramadhan and Moosa as well.

Bahrain carried out the executions of Shia activists Sami Mushaima, Abbas Jamil Tahir al-Sami’, and Ali Abdulshahid al-Singace on January 15. The Court of Cassation had similarly upheld the death penalties given to the three over allegations of killing an Emirati security forces in al-Daih in Bahrain in March 2014. Emirati forces have been deployed to Bahrain to help the regime crack down on political dissent.

The defendants had denied the charge.

The international rights group said the confessions of Ramadhan and Moosa, which had been extracted under torture and which both men had retracted, were used as evidence in a trial that violated international judicial standards.

“Bahrain should not under any circumstances execute two more young men, especially where there is credible evidence of confessions obtained through torture and unsound convictions,” said HRW’s deputy Middle East director, Joe Stork.
