RNA - The court permitted Rajab's lawyer to meet his client at the Kalaa Hospital, and allowed Rajab to watch DVDs of television interviews on a laptop where he is held, Bahrain reported.

Earlier this month, the jailed Bahraini activist criticized US President Donald Trump in a New York Times column for selling arms to his country and Saudi Arabia, citing of their human rights records.The column appeared ahead of Trump's recent visit to Saudi Arabia, a supporter of the fellow Sunni Muslim-ruled kingdom of Bahrain as it grapples with continued unrest from its Shi'ite majority, NDTV reported.
