Bahrain's highest court has upheld life sentences for a prominent Shia cleric who led a now-shuttered opposition party and two of his colleagues.
The ruling on Monday targeted Sheikh Ali Salman, who headed the Al-Wefaq political party.
A court in June previously acquitted Salman and his two colleagues of spying charges. Bahrain's Supreme Court of Appeals later overturned that verdict and found them guilty in November.
Both state-aligned media and activists reported the ruling by the Court of Cassation.
