Bahrain Crackdown: Manama Court Upholds Rights Defender Nabeel Rajab’s 5-Year Prison Sentence
Local Editor

Never changing its unjust stances towards human rights defenders and peaceful activists, a Bahraini regime's appeals court upheld a 5-year prison sentence against Nabeel Rajab on Tuesday.

Nabeel Rajab

The Bahraini human rights defender was convicted in February for alleged accusations of "deliberately disseminating in wartime false or malicious news ... offending a foreign country ... [and] insulting a statutory body."

The charges stem from mere tweets about the Saudi-led war in Yemen and Manama's mistreatment of prisoners.

In this regard, international rights groups repeatedly called for Rajab's immediate and unconditional release, accusing Manama of violating his right to free expression.

Rajab is also serving a separate 2-year sentence over television interviews and faces additional charges over op-eds published in western newspapers.
