KUWAIT CITY, June 20: In a verdict, which represents victory for children of Kuwaiti women and non-Kuwaiti men, the Court of First Instance ordered Kuwait University to pay students allowance retroactively from four years to two students, whose mother is a Kuwaiti, after they were excluded from the allowance due to non-renewal of the ID of their resident non-Kuwaiti father.
In the case filed by Lawyer Hanan Al-Enezi, she sued Minister of Higher Education and Secretariat General of the Council of Private University in their capacity. She requested for an expert to calculate the amount the students had paid one of the private universities in Kuwait, affirming that the first complainant deserved a social allowance from March 2011 up to end of the academic year of 2014.
After Lawyer Al-Enezi presented all the documents, the court issued a ruling mandating payment of the approved social allowances to Kuwaiti children for the above mentioned period.
