Cannot seize passport: court

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 13: The Appeals Court upheld the ruling of the Court of First Instance and revoked the Interior Ministry’s decision to seize the passport of a citizen, stressing the act contradicts Kuwaiti Constitution that guarantees freedom of movement. Defense Attorney Fawziah Al-Sabah stated the Ministry of Interior is required to issue a new passport for her client subsequent to the court ruling that canceled the decision of the ministry banning her client from traveling. She also said the ministry has no justification in seizing the passport while her client was sentenced and imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. She explained that freedom of movement is guaranteed by the Constitution and it’s the right of citizens that should not be violated but preserved.

Manager acquitted: The Misdemeanor Court presided over by Judge Ali Al- Shahoumi acquitted the manager of one oil plant of negligence that had resulted in a fire. Defense Attorney Najeeb Al-Waqyan argued that investigators did not find any technical evidence to implicate his client for negligence, while the fire did not resulted from lack of periodical maintenance works, which confirms the fire was by accident. Moreover, reports of the Criminal Evidences Department indicated that maintenance works are conducted regularly on the conductors at the plant.
