2 years jail upheld for Habib in absentia

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 25: The Criminal Section in the Court of Appeals upheld the decision of a lower court to sentence Munzer Habib in absentia to two years in prison, allowing suspension of implementing the sentence for three years.

The Public Prosecution charged Habib, on the background of the symposium entitled “Stop Frivolity” including the gathering of more than five individuals, with destabilizing security, participating in unlicensed march, offending the Amiri entity in public, offending the power given to the Amir and attacking the position of the Amir. The prosecution called for punishing Habib according to Article 25 of law number 31/1970 and some articles of the Penal Act.
