Bahrain Mirror: The Public Prosecution ordered the detention of a citizen for a week and his referral to trial for allegedly "insulting the honor of lawyers", based on complaints filed by the Bahrain Bar Society against the citizen. 

The head of the Cybercrime Prosecution said that the Public Prosecution received complaints from the Bahrain Bar Society about "publishing and circulating a video clip on social media in which the accused talks about lawyers in the Kingdom of Bahrain" and claimed that he described them with "offensive words that hurt the honor of the profession and affect their consideration."

The head of the "Cybercrime Prosecution" said that the "Public Prosecution" interrogated the accused and confronted him with the clip in question and the accusation against him, and ordered his detention for 7 days "pending investigation." The prosecution referred the accused to the "Lower Criminal Court" and set Tuesday, March 21, 2023, as a date for his trial.
