KUWAIT CITY, Oct 4: The Court of Cassation presided over by Judge Ahmad Al-Ajeel has scheduled the session of October 17 for the hearing of the case related to the Bangladeshi MP in which some officials of the Ministry of Interior and Public Authority for Manpower and a former MP are involved as defendants. Previously, the Court of Appeals had sentenced the former assistant undersecretary for Passports and Citizenship Affairs at the Ministry of Interior Sheikh Mazen Al-Jarrah, a former official of the Public Authority for Manpower Hassan Al- Khidr, and the former MP Salah Khorshid to seven-year imprisonment with hard labor and immediate enforcement after they were convicted of crimes related to bribery and abuse of influence.

The Court of Appeals upheld the ruling of the Court of First Instance to imprison a former candidate in the Fourth Constituency Nawaf Al-Mutairi for four years, and Mohammad Rashidoun, a worker of the Bangladeshi MP’s company, for three years. The court acquitted the former MP Sa’adoun Hammad of all charges. The court explained that all the crimes attributed to the first defendant that he has been convicted were organized by a single criminal project with several acts that complement each other. They together formed the criminal unit intended by the legislator, which warrants punishment, especially on the first defendant who betrayed trust, and exploited weak migrant workers by devouring their money.
