KUWAIT CITY, March 14: The Court of Appeals, presided over by Judge Nasr Salem Al Heyd, looked into several State Security cases, says Al-Seyassah. The court postponed until March 28, 2018 the issuance of its verdict on the case of a Filipina accused of joining ‘IS’.
The Criminal Court had earlier sentenced the accused to 10 years in prison. The court also ordered retrial on the case involving journalist Hamid Boyabis accused of spreading fake news and military secrets. The hearing is slated for April 11, 2018 during which the official prosecution documents will be submitted, as defense lawyer Refai Aloush informed the court that his client was acquitted in another case and that the good conduct provision does not apply to him.
