Bahrain Mirror: A Bahraini court issued on Sunday (November 18, 2018) 5-year jail term against 13 citizens.

The court said that the 13 defendants burnt a police car and assembled in Abu Saiba.

A number of international human rights organizations see that Bahrain uses jurisdiction as a retaliatory and punitive tool. Human Rights Watch describes jurisdiction in Bahrain as a system of injustice and says that Bahrain's courts play a key role in maintaining the country's highly repressive political order, routinely sentencing peaceful protesters to long prison terms.
