Cleric accused of violating unity law

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 19: Attorney Adnan Abul filed a complaint with the Attorney-General, Dhirar Al-Asousi, accusing religious preacher, Fouad Al-Rifai of violating the national unity law, after he described the Shiite Muslims as renegades and infidels.

In the same context, detectives from the Cyber Crimes Department have filed a case against Fouad Al- Rifai, accusing him of violating the law of preserving national unity and preventing sedition incite. Attorney Abul the Public Prosecution demanded to take appropriate legal actions against the accused as per the law concerning the preservation of the national unity.

The accused, Al-Rifai, had humiliated one of the social calibers of the Kuwaiti society and instigated sectarian sedition, which is in violation of the national unity preservation law — actions that could lead to hatred and also inciting sectarian sedition in the country.

GM acquitted: The Misdemeanor Court upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance that acquitted a general manager of a commercial company of forging proceedings of an invitation to attend the general assembly meeting of the company. The Public Prosecution had charged the accused of fraudulent act with the intention of giving false impression. She referred to herself as the general manager of the company to validate deception. She had already been discharged from duty in a previous court ruling that invalidated her appointment, even though she continued claiming the aforementioned position. Defense Attorney Ali Al Wawan representing the accused affirmed lack of incriminating evidence of cheating against his client. He said his client since the beginning of investigations had stuck to the position of general manager based on the last decision and minutes of the last general assembly that were not invalidated by court rulings
