Former Bahraini parliamentarian ‘Jalal Firooz’ condemned Western silence over Saudi’s aggression in the region and stressed that the Saudis are bribing western governments to keep silent over its war crimes.
The Bahraini activist said: The Saudis have now stood against the Iraqi forces in the Iraq war fighting against ISIS and seeking to free their lands from the terrorists. This is another evidence that the Saudis are backing the terrorists groups.
Asked ‘Is it possible to prosecute Saudi Arabia in the international criminal court?’ he replied: ‘There has been some steps taken in the ICC but it seems that even this court is under the authority of the western regimes who are having good relation with Saudi Arabia.’
Firooz said: If it was not Saudi who committed the war crimes in Yemen, the UN would have called it a war crime and the criminal would have been taken to the ICC. But unfortunately now the western regimes are avoiding and preventing the Saudi to be called criminals.
Asked ‘Why does the British government still support Saudi Arabia in selling arms to this country?’ he said: Unfortunately the western regimes are only interested in their own financial interest by selling arm to Saudis. They like to see agitated areas so their military companies can sale more weapon.
He added: They are also receiving cheap oil from Saudis so in general they are benefitting financially from Saudi.
Firooz also claimed that the Saudis have been known to bribe the western governments.
He said: As the German chancellor said, West should stop the Saudi bribing and trying to buy the silence of the governments.
Asked about his opinion on the similarities between the Saudi and Israeli regimes he replied: There is no doubt that Saudis are going the same path as the Israeli government. Israelis have been doing expansionary and killing the innocent people without any heartfelt and that is exactly what Saudis are doing in Yemen and Bahrain by killing and the massacre going on in these countries.
