Bahrain Mirror: Bahrain's Second High Criminal Court decided to reject, in absentia, the right of a 50-year-old Bahraini accused of "assembly" to appeal for not appearing before the court during yesterday's hearing and upheld a sentence of one year imprisonment against him.
The authorities claim that the 50-year-old defendant, wanted by the security services over charges of an alleged "attack on a security patrol", participated in a 2012 assembly in the Manama area, during which the police took him into custody.
