Ten-year jail for Kuwaiti, wife acquitted in maid kill

KUWAIT CITY, June 8: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Abdulnasser Khuraibet sentenced a citizen to 10 years imprisonment with hard labor and acquitted his wife in the murder of a housemaid whom they buried in ‘Al-Hijin’ desert.

Earlier, the Prosecution charged the man and his wife for killing the housemaid and the man confessed that his wife had beaten the housemaid to death using a thick stick, and then kept the body inside a box and buried her at night in the desert to conceal their crime. After that, they filed an absconding report against the victim.

Meanwhile, the court acquitted the son of one Special Forces top official of mocking religions.

MPs Sentenced: The Court of Cassation presided over by Justice Saleh Al-Mureishid overturned the verdict of the Appeals Court that acquitted former MPs Falah Al- Sawagh, Khaled Al-Tahous and Bader Al-Dahoum in the state security case filed by Public Prosecution. The court sentenced the three defendants to 20 months in prison with hard labor, and ordered suspension of the sentence for three years with KD 2000, besides a pledge they signed to be of good conduct. Earlier, the Court of Appeals rejected the verdict of First Instance Court that sentenced the defendants to three years imprisonment with hard labor for offending the entity of HH the Amir.

Justice served: The Administrative Court canceled the ministerial decisions 5/2013, 6/2013, 8-9/2013, 13- 14-15/2013 and 20/2013 and ordered the appointment of a plaintiff as Head of Accounts in the Finance Ministry. The court also obliged the administration to pay KD 5001 in temporary compensation to the plaintiff. According to the case file, the Ministry of Finance announced vacancy for a Senior Head of Accounts on condition that the applicant should pass a written exam and an interview with a minimum score of 70 percent. Despite the level of experience held by the plaintiff, he earned a lower score, so he filed a complaint and asked for re-marking of the papers but he was told that the papers had been executed already. In a statement after the verdict, Attorney Nawaf Sari Al-Mutairi said the administration’s refusal to re-mark the papers on the pretext that they were already executed confirmed the level of oppression and bias in the recruitment process, through which the establishments lose credibility and transparency.
