Manama, Jul. 24. (BNA) – The Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments has filed a lawsuit to suspend the activities of the Justice and Development Movement (JDM) for three months until it rectifies its legal status in accordance with its statute.
In a statement, the Ministry’s Political Societies’ Affairs Office said that JDM had violated the law and its own statute for failing to hold its annual general assembly for 2012 and elective assembly of 2013, although the Ministry had addressed it directly on the violations and requested their rectifications.
The office stated that another lawsuit had been filed to suspend the National Democratic Action Society(Wa'ad) for three months until a new Secretary-General is elected.
The office pointed out that the Society had been addressed on the violation and requested to rectify it, but it refused.
The office stressed that in line with its responsibilities, it affirms its assiduity in monitoring the proper application of the Law through constant follow up of assemblies held by political societies in order to ensure that they are properly held in accordance with the applicable laws and the respective statutes of each of the societies.
