Court to issue ruling on plea by journalist.
Associated Press correspondent Reem Khalifa, wife of opposition newspaper editor-in-chief Mansoor Al Jamri, was fined BD100 by the Lower Criminal Court in April, which also ordered her to pay compensation totalling BD500 to her victims - BD200 each to the doctors she assaulted and BD100 to the one she insulted.
She then filed an appeal at the High Criminal Appeals Court.
Ms Khalifa confronted the female doctors after a Press conference called by a visiting Irish medical delegation in July last year.
The event ended abruptly when Bahraini doctors who showed up started heckling the delegation, saying they had ignored abuses committed by protesting medical staff during the unrest.
Ms Khalifa was caught on camera confronting and insulting the female Bahraini doctors who attended the event at the Ramada Palace Hotel.
