KUWAIT CITY, June 22: The Criminal Court postponed until June 28 its third session on the case of those accused of torturing an officer in the State Security Department – a colonel, a presenter and two officers, reports Al-Seyassah daily. In the previous session, the four defendants appeared in court with their defense team, during which they denied all the charges.

On the other hand, the plaintiff’s lawyer demanded for KD5,001 temporary compensation for his client. The Public Prosecution had earlier charged the defendants with abuse of power, illegal arrest and detention, insulting a public official, embezzlement of public money linked to another felony, and forgery of official documents.
