Hearing in Kuwaiti woman’s murder case adjourned Killer flees country

KUWAIT CITY, March 14: The Criminal Court postponed until April 3 the deliberations on the case of those accused of murdering a Kuwaiti woman, in her 30s, in the parking area at Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital. Case files indicate the Public Prosecution charged one of suspects with first degree murder. He is believed to have fled the country and entered the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through Nuweiseeb Border, using the identity of his brother. The brother of the fugitive has been arrested and charged with ‘harboring a fugitive and helping him to escape’, in addition to two other suspects and the son of one of the suspects. Security agencies have coordinated with the Interpol and Saudi authorities for the fugitive to be extradited to Kuwait to face justice.

Earlier, detectives from Hawally Security Command identified the citizen, who murdered a 32-year-old compatriot woman at Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital’s parking area. He fired at her while she was inside her car. On the fateful day, the Operations Room at the Interior Ministry received reports about a woman found soaked in blood at the parking area in Mubarak Al-Kabeer Hospital. The police and the paramedics rushed to the scene but the woman was pronounced dead after being admitted to the hospital. Initial reports showed she succumbed to injuries caused by two gun shots. Sources said the testimonies made by witnesses revealed the perpetrator wanted to talk to the victim, but he ended up smashing the window of her car before killing her.

Verdict revoked: The Court of Appeals revoked the verdict issued by a lower court, which sentenced a military officer to ten-year imprisonment and a fine of KD 500 for kidnapping and robbing a man. The court instead acquitted him of all charges. According to the case files, the officer stopped the victim in front of his office in Abu Halifa and forced the latter to enter his vehicle after showing his ID card to prove he is a law enforcement agent. The suspect took the victim to a deserted area in Wafra where he physically attacked him and robbed him of KD 30 and his mobile phone, after which he fled. Defense Lawyer Mohammad Adwaihi disputed the allegations against his client, affirming that he did not intend to abduct the victim or steal his belongings.
