29 suspects quizzed for flouting precautionary measures

Manama, Chief Prosecutor, Ahmed Al-Ghatam, said that the Public Prosecution had received several reports about numerous religious gatherings in which a large number of people participated, in violation of the precautionary measures taken to prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the ministerial edict prohibiting gatherings in public places for the same purpose.

 

Al-Ghatm added that the Public Prosecution had quizzed 29 accused persons whose participation in these gatherings was proven, and found that a suspect was infected with the virus.

 

The Public Prosecution ordered the immediate transfer of the infected suspect to isolation, and referred ten of those who contacted him to the competent health authorities to deal with them and put them under quarantine.

 

Meanwhile, the Public Prosecution ordered the detention of the suspects who called for and organised the gatherings.

 

Investigations are still underway to identify all organisers and participants in these illegal gatherings in order to refer whoever proven to have organised them or participated in them to courts, Al-Ghatam added.
