A Bahraini court has ordered the arrest of award-winning reporter Nazeeha Saeed, who works for the France 24 television network and the Arabic-language Monte Carlo Doualiya radio.

Saeed said in a tweet on Sunday that Bahrain’s Court of Cassation has rejected her appeal against a May ruling that fined her $3,000 and ordered her arrest until the fine is paid.

Back in May, a Bahraini court convicted Saeed and fined her working for foreign media outlets without a permit.

The Bahraini authorities had in June 2016 refused to renew Saeed’s accreditation and banned her from leaving the country.
