Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's third supreme court of appeals commuted in its session on Thursday (October 8, 2015) the sentences issued against the two suspects accused of killing policeman Ahmad Al-Mraysi. One of the suspects, Ali Al-Taweel was sentenced to death and the other, Ali Atiya, was sentenced to life imprisonment. The court of appeals commuted the sentence of the first suspect to life imprisonment and upheld the sentence of the second suspect.
