Hizbollah dealings in Bahrain under probe

Manama, June 6, 2013

Bahrain has started a major probe into Hizbollah's activities in the kingdom, said a senior government official.

Interior Minister Lieutenant-General Shaikh Rashid bin Abdulla Al Khalifa has directed investigators to examine possible financial investments, commercial and economic dealings, operations that masquerade as charities, bank accounts, money transfers and individual members of the organisation, according to a report in the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.

Legal procedures will then be enforced.

These investigations are part of steps being taken as a result of Bahrain designating Hizbollah as a terrorist organisation.

This also coincides with the GCC's recent announcement that member countries will consider Hizbollah a terrorist organisation and look into its activities in the Gulf region. – TradeArabia News Service
