Fine for real estate firm raised

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 21: The 15th Commercial Division of the Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Adel Al- Juwaid ordered a real estate company to pay KD 290,000 to a general trading and contracting company that carried out the construction and maintenance works of one of the towers owned by the real estate company. The Court of First Instance had earlier issued a ruling that obliged the defendant to pay KD 134,000 to the plaintiff. During the court session, Lawyer Ali Al-Wawan requested the court to revoke the verdict of the Court of First Instance and oblige the defendant to pay KD 290,000 to his client after the expert issued a report indicating the eligibility of his client to receive the payment.

 Citizen acquitted: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Hassan Al- Shimmari acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen in his 20s of allegedly possessing drugs and driving his vehicle under narcotic influence in Salmiya area. According to the case files, a police officer said he was patrolling Salmiya area when he noticed the youth speeding. After stopping the youth to check his Civil ID, the officer realized that the youth was in disoriented state and did not have his Civil ID. He checked the vehicle to find a bag which contained a piece of a brown substance and 22 narcotic pills. Attorney Abdulmohsen Al-Qattan said the procedures for inspecting his client were illegal as per articles 43, 53 and 57 of the Penal law, which forbids restricting the personal freedom of people unless they are caught red-handed or with prior permission from the Public Prosecution
