Kuwaiti sentenced to one month for rioting in Bahrain

March 14, 2012

A Kuwaiti national was sentenced to one month in prison on charges of taking part in demonstrations in Bahrain.

The Bahraini court on Wednesday said that Ali Al Ali would be deported after serving the term and barred from entering Bahrain for the next three years.

The defendant had denied the charges and argued that he was waiting for a friend when he was arrested by the police near Bani Jamra, a village in the north west of Bahrain.
