Top MoI officer sought for helping out expats for cash

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 6: The Criminal Court refrained from penalizing four Kuwaiti citizens who were accused of possessing cannabis with the intention of consuming. Defense Lawyer Mohammad Al- Sulaili requested the court to nullify the arrest-and-search procedures followed by the officer for arresting his clients. He also requested the court to nullify the testimony given by the arresting officer and revoke the report of drug consumption filed against his clients. Lawyer Al-Sulaili explained that the arresting officer randomly stopped his clients without any suspicions of them committing a crime. He searched them without a search warrant from the Public Prosecution, which nullified the arrest of the suspects at that moment when the officer was issuing a traffic citation against one of the suspects. He stressed that all the procedures following the illegal arrest of his clients can be considered illegal, requesting the court to acquit his clients.
