Last year, Bahrain’s constitution was amended to allow civilians to be tried by military tribunals.
The seven defendants include four who were sentenced to death earlier after being convicted of attempting to assassinate Bahraini army chief Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.
The court has postponed trial proceedings until April 11 to allow defense lawyers to present appeal requests.
Verdicts delivered by Bahrain’s military court of cassation -- the military establishment’s highest appellate court -- are final and cannot be challenged.
