Bahrain: Eleven Arrested On Terrorism Charges

Eleven Bahrainis were arrested and sentenced to lengthy prison terms on charges linked to terrorism. The suspects were also found guilty of illegal handling and possession of weapons and explosives.

Five of the suspects were given ten years of prison term and a fine of BD100,000 each. Two were given five years while three others received three years with a fine of BD100,000 each. The court also awarded a three-year jail term to another suspect and acquitted five others.

The arrests were recorded following an investigation by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). Investigators found that a wanted fugitive was recruiting people to target security forces and operate social media pages to promote terrorism.

The Public Prosecution also presented testimonies, confessions and material evidence to the court against the arrested Bahrainis.
