12 : 02 AM - 01/03/2013
Manama-Feb28(BNA)The Court of Appeal has today overturned an initial verdict acquitting Zainab Al-Khawajah and sentenced her to three months in jail, Executive Prosecution Chief Amina Isa said.

The Public Prosecution had charged the accused with insulting and humiliating a public employee whilst on duty and referred her to the criminal court to stand trial.

The court of first instance had then acquitted her, dropping the charges leveled against, prompting the Public Prosecution to appeal the acquittal verdict.

The Court of Appeal had already sentenced the accused to one month and two months in jail in two previous cases for entering a prohibited military zone and damaging state-owned properties.
