The High Criminal Court sentenced two Bahraini men to three years each for setting tyres on fire to block a public road. Ironically, the duo reportedly told Prosecutors that they had committed their crime in support of Palestine.
According to court files, the pair set the tyres alight on May 30 last year after a riot broke out in the area. It’s said that other unknown men took part in the event, but their identity remains unknown as police investigations identified only the convicted pair. “We wanted to support Palestine, this is why we decided to block the roads so people give attention to their case,” the first defendant said.
