Bahrain Mirror: The First High Criminal Appeals Court issued its ruling in 4 appealing objections out of 167 defendants in case of dispersing the sit-in held outside house of Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim in Diraz. The court accepted 3 objections in form and rejected the fourth one.

The court commuted the sentence of one of the defendants from 3 to 1 year in jail, and commuted that of the other two from one year to 6 months in jail. Meanwhile, it rejected the objection of the fourth because he didn't appear before the court.
