Kuwaiti absolved in paying maid, children’s expenses

 KUWAIT CITY, July 2: The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Yousef Al- Muaily has nullified the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance which ordered a Kuwaiti citizen to pay the expenses for employing a housemaid and paying her monthly salary for taking care of his two kids as well as to purchase a vehicle and employ a driver. The court instead dismissed the case. According to the case file, the children filed a lawsuit against their father, demanding him to pay for their expenses, accommodation, housemaid’s salary, KD 100 as monthly study expenses, KD 6,000 for purchasing a vehicle and the driver’s salary. They justified the demands on the fact that they are still in school, they are not working because of which they have no source of income, and they are in need for suitable accommodation, care and transportation. The defense counsel Attorney Faisal Al-Otaibi stressed that the lower court’s ruling was wrong, affirming that his client has been paying all the expenses specified by the Sentences Enforcement Department. He said his client did not have any official document for the claim since he believed it was his duty towards his own children, but some members of the family were aware of it.

Nullify elections: Attorney Salah Al- Hashim has filed a case, demanding the court to nullify the just concluded by-elections which was conducted based on the ‘one-man one-vote’ system. He stressed that the decree did not have the constitutional backing. He explained that he has the right to protest against outcome of the elections as a registered voter from the Third Constituency. He faulted decision 2166/2014 and decree 20/2012 based on which the June 26th byelections was conducted. He said the National Assembly did not deliberate on the decree for necessary approval or rejection as per Article 71 of the Constitution.
