The Bahraini Fourth High Criminal Court, presided over by judge Ibrahim Al-Zayed with the memberships of judges Osama Al-Shadhili and Wael Ibrahim and Ahmad Al-Sulaiman as secretariat, sentenced 14 defendants to 10 years in prison after convicting them of assembling, attacking police in Sitra, and burning a vehicle.

The Public Prosecution claimed that the suspects deliberately set fire to a vehicle on March 13, 2015, assembled using violence to achieve the goal they had gathered for, and acquired flammable materials, aiming at endangering people's lives and public properties, for a terrorist purpose.

Human rights organizations challenge the charges raised against the defendants, since they doubt the independence of the judiciary, whose members are assigned by royal decrees, and since it issues sentences based on confessions extracted under duress and evidence presented by secret investigations and anonymous witnesses.
