Bahrain sentenced two men accused of supporting terrorism to three years in jail and to a fine of BD100,000 each. A third man who was accused in the same case was later acquitted.
Chief of Terror Crime Prosecution Advocate General Ahmed al-Hammadi stated Thursday that the Fourth Grand Criminal Court has issued its sentence in the incident of transferring cash allocated for promoting terrorist groups.
Both men provided financial support to terrorist members and outlaws for the sake of conducting terrorist plots and spurring chaos.
Their quest was to destabilize the kingdom and target security guards.
The first convict assigned the second to hand out money to terrorist members. Moreover, some of the received amounts were distributed to the households of those arrested on security grounds.
The Public Prosecution relied on the witnesses, the first convict’s confession, as well as the technical evidence, to issue charges. The case was referred to the Fourth High Criminal Court.
