Appeal ‘hearing’ in Shamlan’s death row case set for Jan 17

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 2: The Court of Appeals postponed until Jan 17, 2018 the hearing on the appeal against the lower court’s death penalty ruling on Abdul-Aziz Al- Shamlan who is accused of running over, stabbing and murdering Turki Al- Enezi — a police officer.

The Public Prosecution had earlier charged Al-Shamlan with first degree murder as he intended to kill by running over several police officers who were manning a security checkpoint.

The prosecution also charged him with publicly transgressing the authority of HH the Amir, inciting people to join a group whose main agenda is to spread ideologies which will shatter the prevailing system in the country, destroying properties of others and resisting arrest.
