Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's minor criminal court adjourned on Wednesday (November 2, 2016) the case of Bahraini Journalist Faisal Hayyat until November 29 to issue the verdict against him.

During the session, Hayyat's lawyer presented a plea, demanding the acquittal of his client.

Hayyat is being tried over "insulting a religious figure and a certain sect" after a tweet he posted on his social media platform.

The Bahraini authorities arrested Hayyat on (October 9, 2016) Hayyat, few days after writing an open letter to the Minister of Interior Rashid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa related to being tortured in the Bahraini prisons after he was arrested in 2011.
