Bahrain Mirror: The Fourth High Criminal Court sentenced 2 suspects to 3 years in jail over charge of putting fake bomb in Jid Ali.

The Public Prosecution accused the first suspect of putting a fake bomb and accused the second of taking part with the first suspect through agreeing with him to put the fake bomb.

Human rights organizations challenge the charges raised against political detainees, since they doubt the independence of the judiciary, whose members are assigned by royal decrees, and since it issues sentences based on confessions extracted under duress and evidence presented by secret investigations and anonymous witnesses.
