No penalty, duo absolved in drugs case

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 17: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Wael Al- Ateeqi refrained from pronouncing penalty against the first suspect in a drug case and acquitted the second suspect of possessing narcotics for addiction purpose. Apparently, Jahra officers on regular duty in the locality noticed a vehicle and stopped its driver to issue citation against him, because of strange sound that was coming from the vehicle. It was then the officer noticed that the driver was under the influence of illicit substance, while his companion carried no civil ID. The officers went ahead to conduct a search inside the vehicle and found a plastic bag on the driver’s seat containing a white substance and cigarette plus a knife inside the driver’s pocket. Defense Attorney of the second suspect Mohammad Al-Fadhli argued in court and proved that his client’s arrest procedures and inspection were illegal, as well as urine sample taken from him, while the attorney of the first suspect proved it was illegal to stop the defendant in the first place to search him, because he was caught red-handed doing drugs.

Youth acquitted: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Abdulnasser Khuraibet acquitted a youth of setting fire to a ‘Martin Austin’ vehicle parked in front of a garage in Shuwaikh Industrial Area. According to the case file, owner of the vehicle was notified via phone call by custodian of the garage in question that his vehicle had gone up in flames. He rushed to the scene and discovered that the vehicle was devoured completely, but he did not accuse anyone of the crime. Later on, investigations led to the defendant due to financial conflict he had with the owner of the garage. Meanwhile, Attorney Ali Al-Ali argued in court that evidences provided in the case were not genuine, so the court considered the inconsistencies and ruled in favor of the suspect, acquitting him of all charges.
