The Al-Ayam local newspaper said that the Fourth High Criminal Court convicted 115 suspects in a case known as "Zulfiqar Brigades".

The court sentenced 53 suspects to life in prison and 3 others to 15 years in prison. The court also handed down 10-year jail term to a suspect, 7-year jail term to 15, 5-year jail term to 37 and 3-year jail term to 6 suspects. Meanwhile, it acquitted 23 defendants and ordered the revocation of citizenships of the 115 convicts.

It is to mention that a number of human rights organizations documented explicit torture cases in this lawsuit and that most of the defendants complained to the Ombudsman and Special Investigation Unit about being tortured, but to no avail.
