Urgent Action Update: Ten Men Sentenced To Death And Life Imprisonment (Bahrain: UA 47/15)
A Bahraini court of appeal upheld the death sentences against three Bahraini men, the life sentences against seven others and the revocation of the nationality of eight of them on 4 December after an unfair retrial in relation to the killing of three policemen in March 2014.
