Bahrain: Four Imprisoned for Burning Tyres
The Fourth High Criminal Court sentenced four defendants to six months imprisonment each for burning tyres on a road in Sitra.
The defendants were charged by the Public Prosecution on December 17, 2018, with intentionally risking people’s lives and properties and compromising the safety of private and public transport by burning tyres on the road, based on the results of the investigation.
Court files showed that the four defendants burnt the tyres on the road in Block 605 in Sitra with the intention of disturbing public order, halt the traffic movement and spreading chaos. Police investigation led to the first defendant, who confessed to the crime and led to the rest of the defendants, who also confessed in the interrogation to their crime.
