Court acquits GCC national of smuggling 52-kg hashish KD 622,133 in compensation

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 7: The Misdemeanor Court of Appeals presided by Judge Faisal Al-Hariti upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance and acquitted a housemaid of aiding an Asian driver to enter her employer’s accommodation to commit a crime.
Attorney Hashim Saleh Al-Rifaie argued that his client’s arrest procedures were illegal; besides, the statements of the plaintiff were inaccurate. He affirmed that elements of crime were not available, and implored the court must acquit his client or refrain from announcing a verdict against him.
Apparently, the plaintiff -sponsor of the housemaid filed a case against the driver and said he heard footsteps from the basement while going to fetch some items from his car. The plaintiff also said the voice was coming from the room of his housemaid, and then Asian driver came out from the maid’s room and tried in vain to escape, so he called security operatives who rushed to the scene and arrested and referred him to the concerned authorities.

‘Pay KD 622,133 in comp’: The Court of Cassation presided by Justice Mishal Al-Jarewi ordered the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) to pay KD 622,133 in compensation to a citizen, and again obliged one insurance company to pay back the amount to KNPC.
According to Lawyer Saoud Al-Salem, the plaintiff was employed by KNPC until January 2006 when he retired due to health reasons. However, he wasn’t paid the 2,000 days allowance stipulated by the company’s policy.
A district court on April 13, 2010 had issued a verdict and ordered KNPC to pay KD 655.893.76 to the citizen, and not pleased with the verdict, the plaintiff and defendant both filed an appeal in that regard.
