Bahrain Fines Newspaper Staff For False Reports
A court in Bahrain has fined the chief editor of one of the kingdom’s leading independent newspapers and three of his colleagues for publishing false reports about abuses during a crackdown on Shi’ite-led protests earlier this year.
The court on Tuesday found the four from Al Wasat newspaper guilty of disseminating misleading news and fined them about $2,650 each.
Editor-in-chief Mansoor al-Jamri had admitted to mistakenly publishing false information, but said plotters in Saudi Arabia had deliberately deceived his newspaper by providing the fake information.
The journalists’ trial is part of the Bahraini government’s broad crackdown on perceived dissent. Rights groups say hundreds of people are on trial in what they call a revenge move by the kingdom’s Sunni rulers, who put down anti-government protests led by the country’s Shi’ite majority.
The trial for the journalists was one of only a few cases placed before a civilian court instead of a special military tribunal.
Bahrain Journalists Association (BJA) on Tuesday condemned a dawn attack on a Bahraini journalist and called for his protection: here.
ANHRI condemns the sentence issued by the Supreme Criminal Court, fining Mansour Al-Jamry, editor-in-chief of the Bahraini newspaper of Al-Wasat, and three of his colleague 1000 Bahraini Dinars for “publishing news that defame the image of Bahrain abroad” during the protests of last February: here.
