Amnesty International has published a statement raising the alarm in the case of Bahraini lawyer Taimoor Karimi, rendered stateless and now at imminent risk of expulsion after the Appeal Court in Manama upheld his sentence on 23 May. 

In its statement, Amnesty International is calling for urgent action for appeals to be sent in English and in Arabic, addressing the King of Bahrain, the Ministry of Interior and the Minister of Justice and Islamic Affairs and urging them not to proceed to the expulsion of Taimoor Karimi, and to rescind the decision stripping him of his Bahraini citizenship.
