Bahrain Mirror: Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim extended his condolences, in a phone call, to the parents of detained martyrs Sadiq Thamer and Jaafar Sultan, who were executed by the Saudi regime on Monday (May 29, 2023) after 8 years of imprisonment.
The martyrs' parents thanked Sheikh Isa for his condolences and told him: "You're our father and we are patiently waiting for your return to Bahrain. We feel embarrassed speaking to you because we have offered nothing."
The Saudi regime executed, on Monday, detainees Thamer and Sultan over fabricated charges.
The Saudi Interior Ministry issued a statement saying that detainees Thamer and Sultan were executed for allegedly "joining a terrorist cell aimed at destabilizing the security of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain."
The Saudi authorities arrested the two martyrs, Thamer and Sultan, on May 8, 2015, at the King Fahd Causeway, which connects Saudi Arabia to Bahrain, without an arrest warrant issued against them, at the time, and transferred them to the General Investigation Directorate Prison in Dammam.
The detainees were subjected to severe torture and ill-treatment and forced to sign fabricated confessions on which the Saudi judiciary relied to issue death sentences against them.
On January 11, 2022, the Riyadh-based Specialized Criminal Court for "terrorism" upheld the death sentence issued against Thamer and Sultan.
