A Lebanon-based rights group will file a complaint at The Hague against the Bahraini government for ordering the execution of the country's youth.

Chief Representative of the Beirut-based International Coalition against Impunity May el-Khansa will go to The Hague on June 16 to file a new lawsuit against Bahrain's royal family Al Khalifa.

“An important point is that because the British have played a direct role in training Bahraini police for the recent crackdown on people, therefore it is possible that 14 British officials will also be introduced as Al Khalifa accomplices,” el-Khansa said.

El-Khansa added that 10 lawyers from Germany, Spain and France would be present at the court.

“The Hague has called on the UN to dispatch inspectors to Bahrain to investigate the situation in the country, which is a turning point in the process of legal efforts and illuminating Western human rights societies,” el-Khansa said.

She added that the group needed the political support of Iran and other countries since it would probably stage demonstrations and gatherings.

Anti-government protests against the rule of the Al Khalifa dynasty in Bahrain began in mid-February.

On March 14, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates deployed troops in the country to help Bahraini forces suppress nationwide protests.

Scores of people have been killed and many more arrested in the Saudi-backed crackdown on peaceful protests in Bahrain -- a longtime ally of the US and home to a huge military base of the US Navy's Fifth Fleet.
