Man acquitted of kidnapping

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 10: The Criminal Court, chaired by Judge Adnan Jasser, has acquitted a young man of kidnapping a girl and trying to molest her.
Case files indicate a bus driver saw the alleged victim jumping out the car of the accused. The driver immediately stopped to avoid hitting the victim who asked him to protect her from the accused, so he immediately noted the plate number of the suspect’s car.
During interrogations, the girl said the accused convinced her to talk to him and when she got into his car, the suspect started showing signs of anger as she refused to carry out indecent acts with him. She then panicked and forced herself out of the car. She later filed a complaint accusing him of trying to kidnap her with the intention to molest her.
However, Attorney Mohammad Khuraibet, lawyer for the accused, demanded for the acquittal of his client due to the absence of incriminating evidence. He argued the statements of the victim and the driver did not prove that the accused had the intention to commit a crime.
Moreover, results of investigations revealed that the accused called the girl and they had an agreement to meet but after she got into the car, she asked him to return to her area and then he slapped her. The lawyer pointed out this incident does not prove the girl’s claim that the accused tried to abduct her with the intention to molest her.
The court acquitted the suspect after carefully analyzing the evidence and statements presented by both parties.
