25 June 2004
Bahraini authorities on 22 June released six men without charge after their arrest the previous day on suspicion of planning to commit 'dangerous acts'.

Attorney General Sharif Shadi announced the move after a 45-minute hearing. He gave no details.

'They can all go home. They are no charges against them,' said Shadi, announcing the move. Defence lawyer Abdullah Hashim said: 'No weapons and no dangerous materials were found either in their own homes or those of their friends or relatives'.
