Bahrain Mirror: The Fourth High Criminal Court handed down 5-year jail term to 3 Bahrainis and 3-year jail term to a fourth one, after accusing them of attempting to cause a blast in Sitra using a gas cylinder.
The Public Prosecution accused the 4 of attempting to cause a blast in a public place, aiming at damaging public properties, intimidating people and spreading chaos. The suspects also set number of trash cans to fire, aiming at putting people's lives to danger.
Since 2012, riot cases that go under the demonstrations and riot section of the penal code were adapted to apply to the terrorism law, if there were "terrorist" purposes behind them, such as attempted murder of a police officer, violating the provisions of law and endangering the lives of people and their properties, within the regime's framework of harshening penalties against protesters and activists.
