Court adjourns ‘Abdali Cell’ case hearing to Feb 17

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 28: The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Abdulrahman Al-Drameh will Feb 17 look into the State Security Case No. 302/2016, filed against 25 Kuwaiti citizens and an Iranian who are involved in the ‘Abdali Cell’ issue on Feb 17. According to the case file, the Criminal Court had earlier issued various sentences against the 25 defendants – two of them (Kuwaiti and Iranian) were sentenced to death, 15 others were sentenced to 15-year imprisonment with hard labor, three others were sentenced to five-year imprisonment, one was sentenced to tenyear imprisonment, one was sentenced to life in prison and another was acquitted.

Decision revoked: The Administrative Court presided over by Judge Dr Mohammad Al-Tamimi revoked the decision taken to reject the application of a student for the training course for cadet officers in Saad Al-Abdullah Academy for Security Sciences. The court instead ordered the payment of KD 5,001 as temporary civil compensation and accelerated the ruling process without bail bond. According to the case file, the plaintiff explained that his son applied for registration in the academy as a cadet officer. He had passed all required tests and interviews, and met all necessary conditions to join the 2014/2015 Batch. However, his application was rejected while some of his classmates who did not meet all the necessary conditions were admitted. The counsel representing Ministry of Interior revealed during the court session that a case was filed in the Minors’ Criminal Court against the student. However, the plaintiff counsel responded by affirming that his client’s son was acquitted in that case in 2013 through a verdict issued by the appellate court
