Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini Ninth Minor Criminal Court, presided over by Judge Hussein Al-Sheikh and Mohammad Al-Harban as secretariat, looked into the case of the President of the (dissolved) Ulama Islamic Council Sayed Majeed Al-Mashaal on Wednesday (August 24, 2016), in second trial related to charges of assembling, rioting, inciting hatred against the regime, and joining an unauthorized assembly in Diraz, and decided to adjourn the issuing of the verdict until August 31, 2016 with Sayed Mashaal's continued detention.
Al-Mashaal denied the charges raised against him, which claim that he publicly incited hatred against the regime, joined, along other unknown suspects, an assembly of more than 5 persons in a public place, and took part, along with unknown suspects, in an unauthorized assembly.
Lawyer Zahra Abbas, who attended the trial representing Al-Mashaal, requested combining the first case with this one since they are both related to the same charges and pleaded innocent.
