Bahrain Mirror: The minor court issued two verdicts in two cases that violate provisions of Labor Market Regulatory Authority law. It convicted the defendants in both of the cases, sentenced one of them to 6 months in jail and the other to 3 months. Meanwhile, it fined all them to an amount ranging between 3000 and 47000 BD.

The public prosecution had referred both of the suspects, employers who had business records issued for them, in these two separate cases because they kept valid work permits, although they don't need them, which is in violation of the provisions of the Labour Market Regulatory Authority, which constituted a crime under this law.
