Verdict set in abuse trial of journalist.
The defendant was charged with assaulting and insulting France 24 and Radio Monte Carlo correspondent Naziha Saeed at West Riffa Police Station on May 29 last year.
The High Criminal Court yesterday adjourned the case until April 18 for the verdict, despite defence lawyer Fareed Ghazi claiming it was outside the court's jurisdiction and alleging prosecutors had failed to carry out proper investigations or follow proper procedures.
The defendant was previously convicted of assault, using insulting language, failing in her duties, mistreating a civilian by pouring water on her head and flouting professional ethics by the Military Court, which fined her BD400.
However, her case was transferred to the civilian courts after Ms Saeed's lawyer lodged a complaint at the Public Prosecution.
