Attorney General slams report

THE Public Prosecution yesterday asserted that it had dropped charges overlapping with the right to exercise the freedom of opinion and expression - in line with the recommendations set by the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI).

"The Public Prosecutor notified the Court of Cassation president of the decision to drop charges relating to the freedom of opinion and expression," Attorney General Abdulrahman Al Sayyed said.

The statement was in response to claims in a local newspaper that such charges had not been dropped. Mr Al Sayyed slammed the report and said it failed to acknowledge the steps taken by Bahrain to implement the BICI recommendations.
