Bahrain's King Hamad banned protests in Manama in an amendment to a law on public gatherings prior to a major opposition demonstration to be held in August.
Bahraini authorities further imposed a crackdown on peaceful protesters by stricter penalties on the guardians of minors taking part in protests.
Guardians will be given a warning the first time a juvenile is caught taking part in protests. The minor will undergo vocational training or be sent to a social care center if the act is repeated.
Moreover, the Bahraini regime has already decided to ban the mid-August protest and warned to strictly punish participants.
At least 80 people have been killed in Bahrain since anti-regime protests erupted two years ago.
