Bahrain Mirror: The First High Criminal Court continued looking into the case of president of Bahrain Center for Human Rights and prominent human rights activist Nabeel Rajab, in which he is accused of criticizing Saudi Arabia via Twitter over Yemen war.

The court listened yesterday to the defence witness, Rajab's wife and daughter. The court then adjourned his case until September 27 to study it.

This is the second court to consider Rajab's case after the Fifth High Criminal Court was canceled by a decision from Assistant Undersecretary for Administrative Affairs, Abdulla Al-Buainain.

The previous court had again listened to the statements of attesting witness who confirmed that Rajab is the one who posted these tweets upon which he is being sued, despite the account is being managed from outside Bahrain, as Rajab is behind bars and tweets are still being posted under his name.
