Tougher fines for police attackers in Bahrain

Manama, October 1, 2012

People accused of inciting attacks on the police in Bahrain may soon face tougher penalties and longer prison sentences.

The Cabinet yesterday (September 30) discussed a draft law submitted by parliament amending the penal law issued by decree 15 for 1976.

Under the proposed legislation, those accused would face imprisonment, instead of present shorter custody terms.

The session referred the draft law to parliament, enclosing the government's legal opinion. – TradeArabia News Service
