An unusual punishment in Bahraini military prosecutions

According to the Bahrain News Agency, the High Military Court of Appeals has issued a variety of rulings on prosecution and defense appeals in a terrorism case.

One interesting dimension of the case is that the accuseds were, as part of the sentence, deprived of their Bahraini citizenship. Australia also has citizenship-stripping legislation, but only for dual nationals. Prof. Audrey Macklin of the University of Toronto critically explored citizenship-stripping legislation in this 2014 article in the Queen's Law Journal.
