KUWAIT CITY, Nov 15: The Court of Cassation has set the session of November 28 to consider the case of Farah Akbar’s murder, after the Public Prosecutor’s Office appealed the ruling that imprisoned the accused for life, and demanded that it toughen the penalty to death due to the availability of the elements of a premeditated murder. The Criminal Court of Appeal, presided over by Judge Nasser Al-Hayd, had annulled the death sentence by hanging for the murderer of the Kuwaiti citizen Farah Akbar, and resentenced him to life imprisonment.
The defense counsel representing the family members of the victim, Lawyer Abdul Mohsen Al-Qattan, stated that the Cassation Prosecution appealed the judgment issued before the appeal, demanded the annulment of the judgment and the tightening of the penalty on the accused, and requested his execution. The Prosecution had charged the accused of kidnapping the victim on March 13, 2021 from her location in Zahra area and taking her to another place in that area by force, and of deliberately planting a tracking device in the victim’s vehicle that enabled him to track her movements.
It is worth mentioning that Lawyer Al-Qattan demanded the imposition of the maximum penalty stipulated under the articles of punishment, and obligating the accused to pay the victim’s family a temporary compensation worth KD 5,001 for the mental and psychological damages they incurred.
