Court sets Jan 30 to hear State Security case involving ex-MP

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 12: The Misdemeanor Court has postponed to January 30 the hearing of a State Security case involving former MP Faisal Al-Mislim and four journalists working for a TV Channel including the general manager.
According to the case files, the Public Prosecution had accused the defendants of publicly insulting HH the Amir and his government during a live program on the TV Channel on January 28, 2012. The fourth and fifth defendants were accused of assisting the first, second and third defendants to commit the crime of issuing those statements on the channel.
The Public Prosecution also accused all defendants of broadcasting the program, which was presented by first and second defendant while the fourth defendant produced it with directives from the fifth defendant who is the General Manager of the channel.
The channel had organized a live TV interview for the third defendant in which insulting statements were issued against HH the Amir. The interview was held after the opposition group had organized a rally at the Erada Square against the electoral system.
Defense lawyer of former MP Faisal Al-Mislim Lawyer Abdullah Al-Mislim revealed that the Public Prosecution had summoned his client for interrogations over the allegation.

Ex-MPs’ petition on Jan 9: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Adnan Al-Jasser has set January 9th to look into the petition submitted by former MPs Waleed Al-Tabtabaei and Jama’an Al-Harbash against the decision of the Public Prosecution to withhold the complaint filed by them against the Security Forces over the incidents that occurred at Al-Harbash’s diwaniya in Sulaibikhat.
The plaintiff attorney Dr Yousef Al-Harbash submitted three CDs as evidence of the crimes committed by the Security Forces at the diwaniya of Jama’an Al-Harbash during the court session, during which witnesses including former MPs Faisal Al-Mislim and Falah Al-Sawwagh and lawyers Sharyan Al-Sharyan and Jamal Al-Yousef were present.
However, the court refused to hear their testimonies and decided to adjourn the case to January 9, 2013.
