Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's Appeals Court rejected an appeals request by two Shiite religious clerics, against a verdict ruling a 1-year imprisonment against them, after charging them with "protesting in Diraz".

The Appeals Court upheld on Thursday (October 20, 2016) the verdict ruling the 1-year imprisonment of Sheikh Aziz al-Khadran, and Sayed Yassine al-Moussawi, for standing in solidarity with Shiite majority leader, Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim.

The First Instance Court had sentenced (on Wednesday, August 31, 2013), Sheikh al-Khadran and Sayed al-Moussawi, to a whole year in prison each.

The Bahraini regime has launched a vast attack against the Shiite majority around 4 months ago, as it has dissolved the opposition al-Wefaq society, and two other religious societies. It also revoked the nationality of Ayatollah Qassim, while it prevents worshippers from performing prayers in the biggest Shiite mosque.
