Bahrain’s appeals court upholds a six-month jail sentence handed down to prominent human rights activist Nabeel Rajab.
Bahrain’s prosecutor general claims Rajab was convicted for publically insulting state institutions. In a post on social media websites last year, Rajab wrote that Bahrain’s Interior and Defense Ministries have turned into a breeding ground for men who joined extremist groups such as ISIL. As a leading opposition figure, Rajab spent two years in prison for attending anti-regime protests in the Persian Gulf kingdom. He later served three months in jail for criticizing Bahrain’s prime minister. Rajab is currently behind bars for reporting on violence against political prisoners in the notorious Jaw Prison.
