Bahraini Court Sentences Two Citizens to Prison, Alwasat Says

Aug. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Bahrain’s Appeal Court lowered prison sentences today on two citizens who were accused for different charges related to the country’s political unrest, Alwasat reported.

The court sentenced Younis Achouri, 63, the manager of Muharraq maternity hospital, to one year in prison instead of three for stealing oxygen cylinders from the hospital and transferring it to Pearl Roundabout during last year’s riots, the newspaper said.

The court also lowered a 3-year prison sentence on another citizen to 18 months for being involved in the killing of a police officer, the daily said, without giving the name of the citizen. The court cleared both citizens from incitement charges, the newspaper said.
