Bahrain Mirror: The minor criminal sentenced retired colonel Mohammad Al-Zayani to a two-year jail term with the execution of the sentence over charge of insulting the judiciary.

The public prosecution said it investigated Al-Zayani after the Supreme Judicial Council asked it to investigate him and launch a criminal lawsuit against him after publishing a recording in which he insulted the judicial authority.

The authorities summoned Al-Zayani on June 23 to investigate him after he spoke about corruption in the judiciary on his Instagram account and decided to arrest him pending investigation.
