KUWAIT CITY, June 4: The Criminal Court acquitted two expatriates and several others of stealing 14 sheep from a farm belonging to a citizen in Wafra area. The Public Prosecution accused the two expatriates and others of vandalizing the farm of the plaintiff by cutting the barbed wire around the fence and making away with 14 sheep of the farm owner.
The case file indicated the first suspect sold the sheep to the second suspect at a cheap price, and the latter agreed to buy them knowing they were stolen. Representing the two expatriates, Attorney Esmat Al-Kharbotli argued the investigation was not conducted in a serious manner due to various faults and discrepancies found in the persecution plea. She beseeched the court to acquit her clients of all charges against them.
Grandfather to pay: Al-Ja’afari Family Section at the Court of First Instance ordered a grandfather to pay monthly expenses of his grandchild in place of the child’s father who migrated from the country twelve years ago. The judge ordered the grandfather to pay KD 70 per month for feeding and clothing of the grandchild from the date of judgment. Lawyer Mohammad Al-Qattan representing the plaintiff (mother of the child) based his argument on Article 200 of personal status law that stipulates the oldest relative should be responsible for the upkeep of his kin in such circumstances.
