Kuwaiti citizen acquitted of maid assault

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 10: The Criminal Court refrained from issuing penalty against a Kuwaiti citizen who was accused of battering his housemaid, and instead settled the case by ordering the citizen to take a pledge for maintaining good conduct for a period of one year.
According to the court files, the Public Prosecution had accused the citizen of battering his housemaid, causing her to sustain various injuries as detailed in the forensic medical report.
The plaintiff (housemaid) testified that her sponsor hit her repeatedly when she failed to feed his son and threw the meal that she had prepared into the dustbin. She was admitted in the hospital for three days, after which she reported the incident at the nearest police station and presented a medical report that detailed her injuries.
Defense Lawyer Sultan Al-Ajmi revoked the allegation put forth by the plaintiff, describing them to be irrational and questioning the reluctance shown by the plaintiff in immediately reporting the incident.

‘Car thief’ acquitted: The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Mohammad Al-Drai’ acquitted an individual who was accused of stealing and setting on fire the vehicle of a Kuwaiti citizen.
According to the case files, the plaintiff reported that he had parked his vehicle in front of a cafÈ in Jahra Industrial Area and after he exited the cafÈ, he was shocked to find his vehicle missing. He rushed to the nearest police station to file a case.
Meanwhile, the officer specified his report that after he arrested the suspect, the latter revealed that he had replaced the gear and engine of the plaintiff’s vehicle with that from a broken-down vehicle, after which he took the stolen car to a desert area and set it on fire.
Attorney Mohammad Al-Wawan requested the court to acquit his client, claiming that the evidences against him are not logical and the elements of the theft are not available since the Public Prosecution leaned in its accusation on speeches, not evidences.
