Manama- A criminal court in Bahrain issued an execution sentence in the case of a terrorism convict and a life-sentence in the case of another convict as well as a 3-year in prison for seven others convicted in the same case.

The court also ordered to revoke nationality from the first and second convicts and to fine them with the losses caused by the terrorist attack.

On June 30 2016, a terrorist attack took place in the street of Sheikh Jaber al-Ahmad al-Sabah in Bahrain and killed one Bahraini woman – investigations revealed the committer.

They showed that a wanted man – currently a fugitive in Iran and working for Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – assigned the convicted to carry out the terrorist attack and target police patrol.

Ahmad al-Hammadi, the head of the anti-terrorism public prosecution, said that 10 suspects were involved in the case for accusations of: intentional murder, having ties with a foreign state, possession of unlicensed weapons, carrying out blasts, subjecting public and private transportation to danger as well as getting trained over the use of arms and explosions to conduct terrorist crimes and get involved in them.

Director-General of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Science said that relevant security bodies headed to the site of the terrorist attack where required procedures were taken through preliminary inspection, gathering pieces of evidence and commencing investigations that led to identifying a number of suspects.

On May 23, the Ministry of Interior conducted a security operation in Diraz to break up illegal groupings that led to the death of five and the arresting of 286 wanted individuals.
