The defendants, charged with crimes ranging from provoking violence to assault, received sentence demands in the five to seven-month range — far below the maximum of six years for the lesser charge of provocation.
Prosecutors said the sentencing requests were fairly light because they believed that the group of 25 Ahmadis had played a part in provoking the attack.
The attack, which was filmed and posted on YouTube, saw a mob of about a thousand attacking a house that sheltered 25 members of the minority Islamic sect. Three Ahmadis were killed and five were seriously injured in the violence.
Prosecutor M. Yunis said the sentencing demands were lighter due to evidence that showed that members of the banned sect were systematically provoking riots.
Two other defendants, both under 17-years-old, were still awaiting sentencing demands.
