Bloated accounts of celebrities not a crime

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 16: The Public Prosecution will soon summon two social media celebrities, representing the last batch, in a day or two after interrogating 12 male and female suspects out of 16 suspects in money laundering cases, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

The two celebrities are the owner of Boutiqaat Company Abdul-Wahab Al-Essa, and Abdullah Al-Jasser (nicknamed Aboudka).

Legal practitioners affirmed that the money laundering allegations against the celebrities are without strong proof, because those monies have known sources, which are reputable companies that can be considered as legitimate sources, and they were found in local banks.

They said having bloated bank accounts in Kuwait is not a crime; in fact, finding suspicious sums of money in bank accounts without verifiable sources should rather make the banks the prime suspects for keeping such funds.
