Bahrain Mirror: The Supreme Court of Appeal overruled the appeal presented by a defendant accused of kidnapping a police officer during the 2011 events. The court said the appeal was filed after the allowed period.

The court noted that the appealed verdict was issued on October 4, 2011 in presence of the defendants, while he filed the appeal on November 22, 2015, after the legal deadline for filing the appeal.

Authorities claimed that a group of Bahrainis kidnapped a police officer while he was heading home from work, and once they realized he was from the military apparatus, they attacked and beat him, causing him several injuries.
