Bahrain Mirror: The Bahraini authorities arrested on Wednesday (March 21, 2018) Jalila Al-Sayed Amin from the courtroom after appeals court upheld one-year jail term against her and 1000 BD fine.

The authorities accuse Al-Sayed of managing an account on social media outlets that criticizes the government.

Arresting Al-Sayed raised the number of Bahraini female detainees to 14. Some of the detainees face 5-year jail term over taking part in pro-democracy protests.

10 female Bahrainis are sentenced to 3 and 5 years in prison. Meanwhile, 3 females are held in the pre-detention trial.

"Najah Al-Sheikh, Zainab Makki and Fawziya Mashala" are suspended and "Taiba Darwish, Faten Hussein, Mona Habib and Hamida Joumaa" are sentenced to 5 years in prison, the statistics revealed.

3 sisters "Fatima Ali, Amal Ali and Iman Ali" are serving 3-year jail term, in addition to "Madina Ali, Amira Al-Qashaami and Hajar Mansour".

Political female prisoners are held in Isa Town Women's Prison. Reports issued by human rights organizations state that the detainees are treated in an inhuman way.
