KUWAIT CITY, June 27: The Court of Appeals presided by Judge Waleed Al-Mejal cancelled the decision of Execution Department and lifted travel ban imposed on a citizen involved in a financial offense.
Lawyer Khawla Al-Hassawi said Execution Department had issued an order preventing her client from traveling against a guarantee to honor KD 10,000 he owes.
She argued that her client formally acknowledged the complaint, and in principle, the travel ban should be annulled. She noted there was no evidence that her client will not honor the debt; thus, there shouldn’t be fear of him escaping from payment since the defendant and his family live in Kuwait and holds Kuwaiti citizenship.
She also pointed to the fact that the creditor agreed outside the Execution Department to allow her client to settle the debt on installment.
