Court acquits 3 of dishonesty – ‘Cafe items not taken’

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 17: The Misdemeanor Circuit of the Court of First Instance acquitted three individuals who were accused of dishonesty and confiscation of the contents of a café owned by a citizen.

During investigations, the victim said he established a café and a restaurant based on a fifty-fifty partnership with the first suspect. Due to loss incurred, the first suspect found new partners but the café had eventually closed and the first suspect confiscated the contents of the café and the restaurant and kept them for his use.

Lawyer Ali Al-Wawan, who represented the three defendants at the court, said the investigations were based only on the claims of the plaintiff without any witnesses or any evidences to support the claims. He affirmed that none of the contents of the café and restaurant were found in the possession of his clients, adding that they have been denying the accusations since the start of investigations.

Meanwhile, the Court of Appeals has nullified the annual evaluation of an employee after ascertaining error on the part of the administration in that regard. Lawyer Nouha Al-Raees representing the plaintiff filed lawsuit against the administration where her client was working as legal researcher.

She argued the file of the employee did not contain any query or warning to prove he was not dedicated to the job. She observed that her client barely spent two months on the job and the period was not enough for evaluation. She emphasized the plaintiff was evaluated in error, which violated the rule of law, while a major aspect of the conditions was missing
