Sentence slashed in murder, robbery bid Hearing set for ‘Twitterer’

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 3: The Court of Appeals reduced the five-year jail sentence imposed on a Kuwaiti and an unidentified person to two years with hard labor for trying to kill a man and for stealing the latter’s wallet and mobile phone.
Case files indicate the victim was walking in Khaitan when the accused approached him and demanded for his wallet and mobile phone. When he refused to give them the aforementioned items, the Kuwaiti stabbed him, while the other accused beat him. Luckily, the victim’s friend called police and paramedics who rushed to the location. The victim sustained injuries in different parts of his body.
However, Attorney Abdullah Al-Alanda, lawyer for the accused, raised doubts on the pieces of evidence and testimonies presented to the court. He also presented a letter from the victim’s son, saying his father is waiving his right and asked the higher court to cancel the verdict issued by the Criminal Court.

Hearing set for ‘Twitterer’: The Criminal Court has set December 24 to look into the State Security case filed against a ‘Twitter’ user.
Reportedly, the Public Prosecution accused the suspect of three charges - launching offensive phrases against the position of HH the Amir, misusing the cell phone and participating in an unlicensed rally.
After investigations, he was released on bail worth KD 1,000.

Protesters released: The Detention Renewal Judge released two Bedouns Yousef Jede’a and Khalid Battah on bail worth KD 100 each in a case filed against them for participating in an illegal demonstration.
According to the court files, the Public Prosecution had accused the defendants of participating in an illegal public gathering and detained them for ten days for investigations before they were presented to the court on Monday.

Restaurant workers fined: The Criminal Section at the Court of Appeals, chaired by Judge Abdul-Nasser Khuraibet, upheld the verdict of the First Instance Court which had earlier fined three restaurant workers KD20 each and ordered them to pay compensation of KD5,001 to a Kuwaiti family who suffered from food poisoning after eating food from the restaurant.
Attorney Hisham Al-Fahad, lawyer for the Kuwaiti family, revealed his clients ordered food from the restaurant which delivered the meals to their house. However, they experienced severe stomach pain after eating, so they went to a nearby clinic where they found out they had food poisoning because the meals delivered by the restaurant were not fit for human consumption.
