Bahrain: Corrupt businesswoman’s jail term upheld

A Bahraini businesswoman convicted of bribing a public official has lost her appeal to reverse a one-year prison sentence.

She was also fined BD16,000, which the court upheld. The woman went on trial with an employee of the Jaffaria Waqf Directorate who was accused of squandering BD60 million and accepting a bribe BD16,000 from his co defendant.

The defendant allegedly accepted the money from the bribing businesswoman after promising to modify the classification of land property she rented from his organisation.
