Drug control sleuths seize 7,560 bottles of foreign liquor Two fined for plagiarism; Kuwaiti acquitted in drugs case

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 19: The Drug Control General Department (DCGD) has confiscated 7,560 bottles of liquor smuggled into the country through Shuwaikh Port.
In a press statement Saturday, the department revealed the smuggled bottles of liquor were kept in 630 cartons and the shipment came from a GCC country.  It has been reported the documents of the cargo truck carrying the items were falsified to facilitate the procedures for the entry of the contraband to Kuwait.
Preliminary investigations revealed the main suspect in the smuggling operation is a Kuwaiti who is said to have left the country.  Investigations are ongoing to hold the culprit responsible.
In another version of the story, customs men at Shuwaikh Port in cooperation with the Drug Control General Department foiled an attempt by a Kuwaiti man to smuggle 7,560 bottles of whisky into the country, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.
The citizen tried to smuggle the shipment on forged documents that stated the merchandize belonged to the US military in Kuwait.
Following information the Drug Control Department received about a shipment in a 40-footer container carrying whisky from an unspecified Gulf country, the customs at Shuwaikh Port was notified and the items intercepted.
In the meantime, an Arab man (driver) and two Asian men have been detained in connection with the case, while security operatives are still looking for the Kuwaiti who is currently at large.

Two fined for plagiarism :  The Appeals Court ordered a columnist and the editor in-chief of a renowned magazine to pay KD 5,000 in compensation to female teacher Adawiyah Al-Abduljalil for violating her intellectual property right and copying her scientific work without her permission.    
Plaintiff’s attorney Fawziya Al-Sabah said her client is an intellectual activist and owner of the work “Bases of education license for teachers” of the schools in Kuwait and other GCC countries, which has been registered under her name.
The lawyer said her client was surprised when she discovered the weekly magazine had published in its issue on April 24, 2012 some quotations taken from her work and attributed it to one writer of the magazine.

Citizen acquitted: The Criminal Court has acquitted a citizen of drug possession for personal use and trafficking.
Case files indicate the citizen, who lives in Fahaheel, was arrested after the detectives received information that he is a drug addict.  During interrogation, he admitted having in his possession some narcotic pills that the arresting officers found later in his house.
However, the defendant’s lawyer, Attorney Abdullah Al-Alanda questioned the arrest procedures, pointing out in court that the arrest took place before the issuance of the warrant.  He said his client denied the drug trafficking charge.

Minister sued: Attorney Mohammad Al-Ansari has filed the first case against the incumbent oil minister, demanding nullification of a decision to exclude his client from appointment to an advertised job at Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC).
Al-Ansari said his client completed a degree in law on July 31, 2011 with a grade of 85 percent.  He pointed out the job advertisement published by the company stated the applicants should hold a Bachelor’s degree in law and diploma without specifying the field.  He said his client passed all the interviews and was received as one of those who have successfully secured recruitment in the company.  However, his client was shocked when her name was not on the list of new recruits and the administration of the company did not explain why her name has been left out.
According to the lawyer, he filed the lawsuit when his client discovered the grades of some of the new recruits were lower than hers.
