Life to 7 years in murder case ‘Poll’ appeals adjourned

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 3:  The Court of Appeals dismissed the verdict of a lower court that sentenced a citizen to life imprisonment for murder.
The court chaired by Judge Nasr Salem Hed sentenced the citizen to 7 years in prison with hard labor and execution of sentence for shooting and killing an Iraqi man. He was also ordered to pay blood money worth KD 5,001 to the plaintiff.
According to the case file, the incident took place at the parking lot of Salwa Cooperative Society in the month of Ramadan, while the deceased person was pursuing the wife and sister of the suspect with whom the deceased was having illicit affair.
The deceased person had followed the women to a restaurant and hit their car, and also mishandled them. The suspect is said to have shot and killed the Iraqi instantly when he arrived at the scene, after receiving a phone call from the wife about the incident.

‘Poll’ appeals adjourned: The Constitutional Court presided over by Justice Yusuf Al-Mutawa on Sunday adjourned until March 3 eight electoral appeals filed by First Constituency against the recent electoral process and one-vote per one-voter system.
In the previous session, the court ordered the Supreme Committee for Elections to provide the final results of election held in the First Constituency, following an appeal Khalid Al-Shatti filed against the process, coupled with other appeals submitted by former MPs Abdullah Al-Roumi, Adel Al-Sarawi, Marzouq Al-Ghanim and Aseel Al-Awadhi.
At Sunday’s session, former MP Abdullah Al-Roumi said amendment to the Law of Constituencies was not necessary, while it violated the Constitution.
However, Defense Attorney Naji Al-Awadhi argued the state of affairs in the country had led the Amir to issue that important decision, noting the action is allowed by Kuwait’s Constitution.

Hearing postponed: The Criminal Court adjourned until April 21 the hearing on a case against 11 Bedouns accused of inciting public protests to listen to the testimony of the prosecution officer.
The same court postponed until March 3 deliberations on a case that the Public Prosecution filed against Hamid Al-Khaled, a blogger who posted statements considered offensive to HH the Amir on Twitter.
On the other hand, the Prosecution demanded for the detention of Saqer Al-Hashash, another blogger, for 10 days to complete investigations on the statements he posted on Twitter.
