KUWAIT CITY, Nov 24: The Court of Appeals, chaired by Judge AbdulRahman Al-Daarami, on Wednesday will look into the National Assembly building storming case, involving 70 citizens including 11 former members of Parliament.
Earlier, the court postponed the hearing until Wednesday to appoint a lawyer for former MP Musallam Al-Barrak as his lawyers have withdrawn from the case in protest against the court listening to the prosecution’s plea although it has not responded to a petition filed against a judicial panel member.
Also, the Misdemeanor Court will deliberate Wednesday on the case of former MP Faisal Al- Muslim who was accused of insulting and defaming HH Sheikh Nasser Mohammad. It is worth mentioning that the insult and defamation case filed against Al-Muslim is related to his tweets on the multi-million deposit scandal, as they were deemed offensive to Sheikh Nasser. The case was referred to the Public Prosecution and Ministerial Court.
Four petitions: The Constitutional Court on Wednesday will deliberate on four petitions endorsed by its consultation panel. These petitions include the constitutionality of some articles concerning taxes on goods entering Kuwait, including a clause on cigarettes and imported tobacco in the unified GCC Customs Law. Another petition is about procedures for hearing a case, especially when a litigant requests for rehearing. The third petition is about the establishment of the anti-corruption agency, and the fourth is on some articles in the Domestic Labor Law.
