Bahrain court upholds jail sentences for 9 doctors

The Bahrain Court of Cassation has upheld sentences for 9 doctors who were convicted for treating people injured during protests.

Yes that's right

I guess that government really dislikes protesters and anybody who helps them in any capacity.

story from PressTV -- Iran

A Bahraini court has upheld the prison sentences handed down to nine doctors for treating protesters during anti-regime demonstrations.

Bahrain's Court of Cassation, the country’s highest court, dismissed on Monday an appeal by the medics against their controversial verdicts that have drawn international condemnation to the US-allied Persian Gulf state.

General Abdul-Rahman al-Sayed said that the court confirmed the previous sentences given to the doctors.

In June, the medics, who were working at the Salmaniya hospital in the capital Manama, were given jail terms ranging from one month to five years.

International rights groups have criticized the rulings, with Amnesty International calling it a "dark day for justice." [/ex[

I am sure whet he SHTF there will be plenty of other doctors, and members of the public who will find themselves on charges in front of military tribunals for providing "Aid or comfort" to people deemed enemies of the state in the good ole USA.

Absolutely mental, a war against the people is one thing, to want them to die from untreated wounds just shows exactly what kind of flotsam they are.
Throughout history aid has been given to the injured, even by enemy doctors during wartime.
In fact im sure the geneva convention states that you can capture n enemy doctor to treat your own wounded but you must release him unhurt afterwards.

Does this mean if you capture an enemy doctor during a revolution he is allowed to treat the revolutionary injured, even if you are not because it is providing aid and comfort to an enemy combatant?.

Bahrain is our friend, the king comes for tea with the Queen, as such we will turn a blind eye and focus on the regimes we don't like.
