KUWAIT CITY, Sept 8: The Detention Renewal judge has extended the detention of a hacker affiliated to the DAESH group for ten days, as he is under interrogation for joining the outlawed group and recruiting people for the same purpose.
The suspect allegedly confessed in front of the prosecution chief that he went to participate in a war against another country without authorization, which could spark diplomatic row between Kuwait and the concerned country. He also elaborated the role he played in recruiting people into the group with the intention of toppling the constituted authority and providing fund for the activities of DAESH.
Decision sought: The Administrative Court has ordered the government to submit its decision on the demolition of Shamlan Al-Roumi Mosque and the blue print of the First Ring Road, in the case filed by Attorney Adel Abdul-Hadi against His Highness the Prime Minister, Minister of Public Works and Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs.
The court also postponed hearing on the case until Oct 20, 2016. In the same court, the decision to demolish the mosque was suspended temporarily after Abdul-Hadi filed the case as a matter of urgency, requesting nullification of the decision, whereas the court rejected the government’s plea as a matter of urgency to discard the attorney’s request.
According to the case files, Abdul-Hadi said he was surprised by the decision of the Public Works Ministry to demolish the mosque which is located in Sharq. He said the demolition order was under the pretext that it hampers the expansion of the First Ring Road as per Council of Ministers decision number 82 taken during meeting number 4/2010 on Jan 17, 2010.
He also argued that the mosque is a major landmark in Kuwait City, a unique Islamic heritage built in 1893 and it is located in a conspicuous area which attracts tourists and businesspersons, in addition to its proximity to the commercial area in the Capital. He asserted the mosque is among the heritage mosques and structures as per Amiri Decree of 1960.
