Court rejects ex-MPs petition Case filed against Special Forces

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 9: The Criminal Court has rejected a petition filed by former MPs Jamaan Al-Harbash, Waleed Al-Tabtabaei and Falah Al-Sawwagh to shelve investigations on the lawsuit involving the Special Forces at the diwaniya of Al-Harbash in Sulaibikhat.
The Public Prosecution shelved the case because no evidence of violations which the Special Forces are alleged to have committed at the seminar was found.
The former lawmakers appealed the decision by Public Prosecution to shelve the case and implored the Criminal Court to try the Special Forces who attacked them, stressing they have documented proof and pictures supporting their claim.

Appeal adjourned: The Misdemeanor Court of Appeals adjourned an appeal filed by owner of the Scope satellite channel Fajr Al-Saeed against the verdict of the Court of First Instance that fined former MP Musallam Al-Barrak KD 100 in absentia for defamation, and set Jan 30 to look into the case.
The Public Prosecution charged Al-Barrak for making defamatory statements against the plaintiff, and the Court of First Instance fined the defendant KD 100 and obliged him to pay temporary compensation of KD 5,001 to the plaintiff.

19 protesters freed: Ministry of Interior released 19 people, including former MPs Hamad Al-Matar and Osama Al-Shaheen, after they were arrested for participating in an illegitimate demonstration at Qortuba, while the Public Prosecution referred one suspect to Civil Sentences Execution Department, as he was wanted for financial related crime.
The ministry accused those arrested for organizing illegitimate rally, declining the directives of security officials and resisting officers at the rally which took place on Sunday.
The Public Prosecution had released some of the suspects the same day, while others were detained until investigations had been concluded and they were bailed upon personal recognition.
