Police in Bahrain have arrested five medics in a series of dawn raids on Tuesday morning, just one day after the country’s highest court dismissed their appeals in a case international human rights groups have rejected as a farce.
The first doctor, Ali al-Ekry, was arrested at his home at around 5:30am local time (02:30 GMT), according to his family. Al-Ekry is facing the harshest jail term: He was sentenced to five years in prison for “possession and concealment” of weapons and “illegal assembly”.
The other medics were arrested one-by-one in subsequent raids, according to sources in Bahrain.
The doctors are part of a group of 20 arrested last year and convicted by a military court; those convictions were upheld by a civilian tribunal in June, despite widespread criticism of the trial from international human rights groups.
