MANAMA: Bahrain’s main Shia opposition group has launched a legal challenge against the government’s decision to suspend its activities, the group said yesterday.

In a letter to the justice ministry, Wefaq said its structure complied with the kingdom’s laws. “Wefaq also mentioned that it has not received any official notification of the issue, in which the ministry claims that four of its general assemblies violated the law,” it said in a statement.
