Bahrain denies King's son faces judicial review in Britain
(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Bahrain Tuesday categorically denied allegations that Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al-Khalifa, the King's son and his Representative for Charity and Youth Affairs, was facing what it called a judicial review in Britain.
An official statement, cited by official (BNA) news agency, described allegations against Sheikh Nasser as "false." It did not elaborate on nature of allegations.
"As Bahrain has never sought anonymity or sovereign immunity from the English Courts for anyone in respect of this case, it expresses no view on the DPP's (director of public prosecution) statement that immunity was inappropriate," it said.
"This has been an ill-targeted, politically-motivated and opportunistic attempt to misuse the British legal system," it added.
It affirmed that there was "no evidence for the allegations." Bahrain, it said, categorically denied the allegations against Sheikh Nasser.
"The Government reiterates its firm condemnation of torture and recognises its responsibility to investigate any reasonable allegation. The Government remains committed to implementing the wider reforms as recommended by the Independent Commission of Inquiry and welcomes constructive engagement with responsible campaigners in pursuit of that aim," said the statement.
