Bahrain’s sadistic judical system averts justice for detained Medics, again!

Bahrain civilian court put medics’ retrial on hold until June
By Associated Press – 10 May, 2012

MANAMA, Bahrain — A Bahraini defense lawyer says the retrial of 20 medical professionals on allegations of aiding the Gulf kingdom’s uprising has been adjourned for a month.

The doctors and nurses had been sentenced to prison terms of between five and 15 years by a now-disbanded security tribunal, which was set up by the Sunni monarchy as part of crackdowns against Shiite-led protests that began 15 months ago.

In March, a retrial began in civilian court but was immediately postponed. Lawyer Jalila al-Sayed says the court Thursday delayed proceedings again until June 14.

A retrial also is under way for a group of 21 activists, including a rights defender on hunger strike for three months.
