Bahrain Mirror: The First High Criminal Court rejected the appeals of a youth accused of joining "Saraya Al-Ashtar", upheld a 15-year jail term against him, fined him 100 BD and revoked his citizenship.

The authorities accuse the youth and another suspect (outside Bahrain) of training in camps in Iraq.

The authorities claim that the suspect trained in camps in Iraq and transferred explosives and weapons in some areas. The authorities relied on investigations carried out by an officer.

However, they had no irrefutable proof except that the suspect traveled to Iraq on January 19, 2017 and returned to Bahrain on February 3, 2017.
