The Bahrain government warned political societies on Monday not to carry out any activity that could affect stability in the country as it is to lift the state of national safety on June 1.

The Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowment said in a statement that extreme moves by any party would face legal action in an effort to protect homeland security.

The ministry remarks were response to recent statements by some political societies urging people to go back to the streets.

Some groups have issued statements and posted videos on social networking websites threatening to protest again as the country is to lift the state of national safety on Wednesday.

A wave of anti-government protests started in mid-February in Bahrain, causing the death of four policemen and 24 people so far. The government began to quell the protests in March with the assistance of the Peninsula Shield Forces comprising of Gulf Cooperation Council States.
