Traveller wins compensation from airlines

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 24: The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Yousef Al-Haddad obligated an international airlines company to pay a compensation of KD 3,500 to an Interior Ministry employee of rank ‘Colonel’ because the airlines failed to notify him about the cancellation of its flight to Los Angeles in which he and his family were supposed to travel. Attorney Fawzia Al-Sabah said her client had taken his annual leave from his work to spend it in Los Angeles with his children and had booked the tickets with the airlines company. He had reported at Kuwait International Airport three hours before the flight-takeoff. She explained that her client had completed all procedures prior to the flight and waited with his children, as the flight, which was scheduled to fly at 11:40pm on 30th of August 2011, was postponed. They waited until sunrise of the following day when the company informed him that the flight was cancelled without giving any apology or reasonable excuse. A l - S a b a h stressed that her client suffered material, financial and psychological damages along with extreme disappointment and frustration.

Meanwhile, the Court of Cassation rejected an appeal submitted by Fajr Al-Saeed, the owner of Scope TV Channel and Talal Al-Saeed against Sheikh Abdullah Al-Humoud, Sheikh Malik Al-Humoud, Sheikh Nawaf Al- Humoud and Sheikh Faisal Al- Humoud who were charged for storming the station and damaging its contents worth nearly two million dinars, according to the plaintiff. Attorneys Hanan Al-Sabah and Hassan Al-Hotari representing the defendants implored the court to reject the appeal and uphold the previous verdict. They argued that the appeal is legally acceptable; nonetheless, it is based on legal pleas while the document did not include evidence against the defendants.
