Court withdraws custody right of woman over 4 children Hearing on State Security case against Al-Daihani delayed until March 7

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 15: The Personal Status Court presided over by Magistrate Abdulmohsin Al-Ajeel withdrew the custody right of a citizen woman over her four girls after she got married to another man.
Court files indicate the father of the four girls filed a case through Lawyer Mariam Al-Bahar and demanded custody right of his daughters after their mother got married to another man.
Lawyer Al-Bahar said the defendant had presented two verdicts from the Court of First Instance and Appeals Court to prove the four girls have been placed in her custody, with the final verdict obliging the ex-husband to pay KD 200 as monthly allowance and house rent, KD 45 for the services of a housemaid, and one-time payment of KD 400 to employ a housemaid.
On behalf of the plaintiff, Lawyer Al-Bahar demanded custody of the four daughters based on the fact that their father makes permanent settlement and caters for their expenses after the defendant has gotten married to another person.

Hearing delayed: The Criminal Court adjourned until March 7 the hearing on a State Security case against Nasser Al-Daihani who had been charged with defaming the Amiri Status on Twitter and misusing his mobile phone for that purpose.
Case files indicate, Al-Daihani, a public school teacher, was arrested last year for attacking the Amiri Status through his Twitter account but was released on bail of KD 1,000 after the interrogation.

Appeal rejected: The Cassation Court has rejected the appeal filed by an investment portfolio director against the verdict of the Court of Appeals, which ordered the director to pay back the variation incentive charges of KD 8,083,997, which he had awarded himself.
According to the court files, the portfolio owner (plaintiff) had requested appointment with an expert for explanation on the reason for value increase of his shares in order to determine if it was caused by the portfolio management or by market activity and whether the portfolio director (defendant) deserves incentive option fees of the stock increase.
Earlier, the First Instance Court had rejected the case; however, Lawyer Abdulhameed Al-Sarraf appealed against the verdict. He claimed that the ‘First Instance Court’ had erred its verdict because it misunderstood the article of the contract, which clearly states that the investment portfolio director will not be entitled to any incentive fee except when the value of the shares increase due to market trading operations, in which the director was involved. It also states that the fees will be calculated from the net profit of the portfolio.
The Cassation Court upheld the Court of Appeal’s verdict by obligating the director of the investment portfolio to return back incentive option fees, which he had deducted from his client who is the owner of the portfolio.

Court acquits man: The Court of Appeals presided by Judge Mohammed Al-Khalaf has acquitted a Kuwaiti man of the charge of insulting a bodybuilder on the YouTube website.
The Public Prosecution had charged the suspect with insulting the plaintiff and downloading his picture and placing an offensive and mocking caption underneath the picture. Attorney Wasmiya Al-Rayyas told the court there was no evidence to pin the accusation at her client.
