SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association)-According to his lawyer, Rajab was released on Monday on 300 Bahraini dinars bail (about USD 800) with a travel ban.
The president of the Bahrain Center for Human Rights, is charged with organizing anti-regime demonstrations and insulting Bahraini authorities using social networking sites.
He was arrested on 5 May at the Manama airport upon his return from the Lebanese capital, Beirut. His arrest sparked massive protests in Bahrain and international outcry from rights groups.
The public prosecution said in a statement that Rajab was granted bail last week in the trial of posting tweets deemed insulting but was then ordered to stay behind bars for questioning in the case of taking part in an anti-regime rally and inciting demonstrations.
The hearing in the case over organizing protest rallies was adjourned until June 17.
Rajab, however, vowed to continue his activities, over which he was arrested, shortly after his release.
"I was arrested because of my rights activities," he said, adding that he will "continue to demand rights and defend the oppressed".
