The Lower Civil Court has fined a Bahraini woman BD1,000 for denying her ex-husband the right to see their daughter, although he has a court ruling allowing him to meet her once every week.

The Sharia Court had earlier issued an order enabling her ex-husband to see their only child for three hours at one of the social centres. During the course of this trial, the woman filed a case requesting to define the timings of the meetings between the father and child under the pretext that the girl was suffering from health issues.
