During the trial on Wednesday morning, the Shiite leader denied all charges leveled against him. Salman’s lawyer has called for his immediate release, Press TV reported. Sheikh Salman was arrested in late December 2014 over alleged anti-regime incitements.

Tensions have been running high in the monarchy since Salman’s arrest. The arrest is part of the Al Khalifah regime’s brutal suppression of anti-regime protesters since 2011. Scores of people have been killed and thousands more wounded during the crackdown. The regime has also detained many protesters.
