Bail, good conduct pledge frees Kuwaiti men and 3 women

KUWAIT CITY, May 8: The Criminal Court declined to pronounce punishment against two Kuwaiti men and three female compatriots who allegedly assaulted another Kuwaiti woman and took her mobile phone by force.

The defendants were released on KD500 bail and obliged to sign an undertaking to be of good conduct for one year. The Public Prosecution accused all suspects of robbing the victim. The second accused was charged for attacking the victim while the three women yelled at her- in the course of which the third accused snatched her mobile and assaulted her.

At the court session, the defendants denied the allegations leveled against them. Lawyer of the second defendant, Abdul Aziz Al Dashti, in defense of his client said there were no proofs to back the claim while the defendant denied all accusations against her. The court thereby decided not to issue punishment against them.
