Bahrain News
Fri, 15 Apr 2016


A CONTROVERSIAL Kuwaiti MP convicted by a Bahraini court of unlawfully collecting funds and distributing them to convicted rioters and their families has demanded a retrial in his own country. The lawyer of Abdulhameed Dashti, who was sentenced in absentia by Bahrain’s Lower Criminal Court in December, claimed the charge was “fabricated” and lacked evidence.
