Bahrain Mirror: The Fourth High Criminal Court issued jail terms ranging between a year and 2 years against 6 suspects over taking part in an assembly in Al-Kawarah and blocking the streets with bricks and palm trunks.

The Public Prosecution accused the suspects of deliberately setting fire, on February 14, 2017, that would put people's lives and money to danger, taking part in an assembly with more than 5 persons in a public place, aiming at committing crimes and disrupting public peace, noting that they used violence to achieve the aim they gathered for, and acquiring, along with other unknowns, Molotov manufactured by the second suspect, with the aim of using them to put people's lives and money to danger.

The court sentenced the first and second suspects to one year in jail and the suspects from the third till the sixth to 2 years.

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.
