Kuwaiti man fails to win son custody

KUWAIT CITY, May 28: The Jaafariya Personal Status Court dismissed the lawsuit filed by a Kuwaiti man, demanding the custody of his son. The decision came 10 years after another court affirmed the right of his exwife to have custody of their son. The Kuwaiti man asked the court to transfer custody of his son to him because the latter is now above seven years old. Lawyer for the ex-wife, Attorney Fatima Mahdi from An’am Haider Law Firm, presented documents of the previous ruling against the man, affirming that he is a Sunni and urged the court to dismiss the case. After a thorough analysis of the pieces of evidence and arguments presented by both sides, the court dismissed the case in the interest of the child.

 ‘Rectify error’: The Administrative Court, presided over by Judge Hisham Al-Bassam, has instructed the Kuwait University president to correct an error in the grading of a student and issue a new certificate with the rectified grade. Case files indicate the plaintiff’s counsel, Attorney Khaled Al-Anazi, filed the lawsuit on behalf of his client who is a student at the College of Social Studies. He pointed out his client has completed the graduation requirements and he was an outstanding student, so his name should be included on the honor list as he got excellent results in all his courses. He disclosed there was a mistake in recording the student’s grade for the Financial Administration and Budgeting course, as he was given a grade of 74 percent despite the excellent academic performance.

 Hearing June 22: The Constitutional Court, chaired by Judge Yousef Al- Muta’ah, scheduled a session for June 22, 2014 to deliberate on a petition against the Public Gathering Law; which was referred by the Misdemeanor Court. Attorney Mohammad Mohsen Al- Mutairi filed the petition, arguing that the law is not in line with Article 34, Paragraph One of law number 31/1970. He said the law also contravenes articles 30, 32, 33, 36 and 44 which guarantee individual freedom. He added there should not be any crime or penalty without legal basis.

 Verdict delayed: The Constitutional Court postponed until June 11, 2014 the issuance of a verdict on a case concerning the constitutionality of one-man-one-vote electoral system for cooperative societies. A group of lawyers filed the lawsuit at the Administrative Court, which had earlier ruled on the suspension of elections in some cooperative societies until the Constitutional Court issues its final ruling.
