Viewing cable 08MANAMA66, NO GOVERNMENT APPEAL AGAINST JUDGES' DECISION IN

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

SUBJECT: NO GOVERNMENT APPEAL AGAINST JUDGES' DECISION IN 
TERRORIST CELL CASE 
 
REF: MANAMA 20 AND PREVIOUS 
 
(SBU) The deadline for appeals in the terrorist cell case (reftels) passed on January 30 with neither the prosecution nor the defense opting to take action. Chief Prosecutor Nawaf Al-Mouada confirmed to Poloff on February 3 that Bahrain's senior-most prosecutor, Ali bin Fadhul Al-Buainain, had decided not to pursue an appeal of the January 16 verdict. For their part, defense attorneys had stated previously that they would not appeal the verdict either, viewing the six-month sentences as the equivalent of an acquittal. Al-Mouada also confirmed that Ishaaq Faheem Ishaaq Abd al-Rahman, Abdulrahman Mohammad Jaffar Ali, and Ali Eid Muttar Jassim were released shortly after the announcement of the verdict, and, with credit for time served, have completed their sentences. ********************************************* ******** Visit Embassy Manama's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX********************************************* ******** HENZEL
