Anti-Bahrain social media accounts being run from Iran, Qatar, Iraq

MOI:

The Director-General of Anti-corruption and Economic & Electronic Security announced on Sunday that an investigation into the social media accounts that tended to encourage sedition and harm civil peace, social fabric and stability had shown that most of them were managed by sources in Iran, Qatar, Iraq and European countries. Many of them were also handled by the fugitives convicted in absentia.

He said that those accounts had been involved in executing a systematic plan to tarnish the image of Bahrain and its people and promote sedition and disharmony in society. The Director-General said the investigation had also revealed an anti-social e-network and identified the way its accounts were managed and the countries where they were based. Yousif Al Muhafdha and Hassan Abdulnabi (Al Sitri ), both of them fugitives living in Germany and Australia, formed the e-network of accounts.

The IP addresses of those accounts showed they were managed from Iran, Qatar, Iraq and some European countries such as France, Germany and Australia. The investigation also showed there were e-cells that backed the network by providing false information from within the country and promoting their messages. Those cells have been identified and legal steps are being taken against those involved.

The Director-General said that legal action would also be taken against those social media accounts that posted illegal content or information to harm civil peace and social fabric. He stressed the importance of not dealing or interacting with those accounts and networks to avoid accountability.

He urged people and the social media users to be careful when posting information and avoid reposting allegations. He also advised them to check information from official sources and not use the social media to spread malicious rumours that harmed security and civil peace.
