The Bahraini court of appeals decided on Sunday (September 13, 2015) to adjourn issuing its verdict in four cases brought against opposition activist Zainab Al-Khawaja until October 21, 2015, except the verdict of the case over charges of "entering a restricted area in Jaw Prison" which was postponed until November 17, 2015.

A Bahraini court sentenced Zainab Al-Khawaja to 3 years in prison in December 2014 and fined her 300 BD over charges of insulting the king of Bahrain after she tore a photo of him in court. On June 2, 2015, the court sentenced her to nine additional months over "the charge of entering a restricted area in Jaw Central Prison" and a year and four months over "insulting a policeman," besides issuing a fine of 300 BD as bail to suspend the sentence. The total number of sentences amount to more than 5 years.

Before the trial, Amnesty International called on Bahrain to release the human rights defender, Zainab Al-Khawaja, about 24 hours before she stood trial over charges of "insulting the king".
