Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's Fourth High Criminal Court, presided over by judge Ali bin Khalifa Al-Dhahrani with the membership of judges Jamal Awad and Hamad bin Salman Al Khalifa, decided on Monday (October 12, 2015) to adjourn the trial of the opposition figure and former Secretary-General of the National Democratic Action Society (Wa'ad) until November 12, 2015, with the summoning of the attesting witness in the next hearing.
The Bahraini authorities had raised against Sharif charges of "promoting to change the regime in power and inciting hatred against the regime," after he had delivered a speech during the funeral of martyr Hosam Al-Haddad in Muharraq.
It is noteworthy that Sharif was one of the imprisoned Bahrain 13 figures, who was later released by a royal pardon after serving 4 years and 3 months in prison
out of a 5-year term. The authorities; however, arrested him again 3 weeks after his release.
