Kuwaitis cheated: Police are looking for an Egyptian for swindling four Kuwaitis after luring them to join his business and disappeared after with 10,000 dinars, reports Al-Rai daily. The suspect reported took the men to a café and said he is the owner of the place. They fell for the trick and after the Egyptian went missing they discovered the place belongs to someone else.
Jail quashed: The Court of Appeals cancelled the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance which sentenced a Kuwaiti citizen to two-year imprisonment with hard labor. The court instead ordered him to pay a fine of KD 300 on the charges of causing injuries (including a broken nose) to his fi- ancé and damaging her colleague’s vehicle. The Public Prosecution had charged the citizen of intentionally injuring his fiancé and causing the injuries that were described in the medical report as well as damaging her colleague’s vehicle. Reportedly, he had also performed stunts with his automobile in a manner that was dangerous not only to himself but to others as well. The defense counsel Lawyer Zayed Al- Khabbaz called for the cancellation of the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance due to lack of incriminating evidences against his client and contradiction of the technical evidences with the victim’s statements.
