Bahrain Mirror: The First High Criminal Appeals Court upheld a 15-year jail verdict against an appellant out of 12 suspects in "arms warehouse" case in Tubli and fined him 1000 BD.
The authorities claim that the 12 suspects acquired 12 Kalashnikovs with their silencers and 3050 rounds, 5 pistols with their silencers and started manufacturing explosives.
The first-instance court had sentenced 11 suspects to 15 years in jail and sentenced the 12th suspect to 5 years.
