    The U.N. human rights office has criticized the harsh sentences given this week to anti-government protesters and medical staff in Bahrain.

    A spokesman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights says the fact that the sentences were handed down by “a military court with serious due process irregularities raises severe concerns.”

    Rupert Colville told reporters in Geneva on Friday that the Bahrain government has a duty to ensure all detainees are charged with a recognizable criminal offense.

    Bahrain’s special security court on Thursday sentenced a protester to death for killing a policeman. It also gave doctors and nurses who treated injured protesters during the country’s uprising earlier this year lengthy prison sentences.
