Bahrain Mirror: A Bahraini court held the first hearing session of the detained Shiite cleric and prominent preacher Sheikh Mounir Al-Maatouk on Monday (August 22, 2016) and adjourned it until August 30 with his continued detention.

The authorities charged Al-Maatouk with illegal assembly over the sit-in held in front of the spiritual leader Sheikh Isa Qassim' house since June 20, protesting over the decision to revoke his citizenship.

It is to mention that the authorities summoned Al-Maatouk on August 9 and decided to detain him to present him to the Public Prosecution. However, on the following day, the prosecution decided to arrest him for 15 days pending investigation.
