Police find huge quantity of drugs on two peddlers

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 26: The Criminal Court, presided over by Judge Faisal Khuraibet, acquitted two expatriates of trafficking in drugs. It has been reported the officer in charge of the case disclosed the investigation results showed that one of the accused possessed drugs for sale and personal consumption. A warrant was obtained from the Public Prosecution to raid the suspect’s accommodation in Hawally, during which the securitymen found a plastic can containing mixed tobacco and a nylon bag full of drugs. According to the officer, the suspect confessed that the items belong to him; indicating he got hashish, heroin and narcotic pills from the other accused. However, he did not disclose the identity of the supplier of ice drugs.

During the raid in the accommodation of the second suspect, the securitymen confiscated five plastic bags containing narcotic pills for sale and personal consumption. Attorney Fahd Al-Mutairi, lawyer for the accused, submitted a memo to the court explaining the circumstances related to the case. He pointed out loopholes in the procedures taken to arrest his clients, as well as the inspection and raid procedures. He argued the accommodations of his clients were raided before obtaining permission from the Public Prosecution. Moreover, the lawyer asserted the results of investigations were inconclusive; while the testimony of the officer in charge of the case is not in line with the actual incident. He, therefore, demanded for the acquittal of his clients. The court ruled in favor of the accused after a thorough analysis of the arguments and evidence presented by both sides.
