The Court of Appeals postponed on Wednesday the "terrorist cell" case No. 302/2016, in which 26 people are involved, to April 13 for hearing defense.

The court asked the Public Prosecution to address some government bodies to send reports concerning some defendants involved in the case.
Some defendants had dismissed accusations of involvement in a terrorist cell, in the first hearing since the Public Prosecution challenged the court ruling against the defendants.

On January 12, the criminal court sentenced two of the defendants, the first and 23rd one in the list, in the terrorist cell to death, while one of the accused in the 26 member cell was given a sentence of life imprisonment.

Other accused defendants in the case received sentences from five to ten to 15 years in prison. One of them was fined about KD 5,000 while another was acquitted of all charges against him.

Furthermore, the court ordered the confiscation of all weapons that were possessed by the terrorist cell. Last September, the public prosecutor lodged criminal charges against the terrorist cell known as the "Al-Abdali Cell," in which 26 defendants were put on trial over possession of huge caches of weapons and ammunition, as well as espionage for Iran and Hezbollah.
