KUWAIT CITY, April 28: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Mohammad Yousef Jafar sentenced a Kuwaiti citizen, his mother, brother and cousin to seven year imprisonment with hard labor for kidnapping his children from their mother, who had later filed the case because she is officially the guardian of their children. The plaintiff counsel Lawyer Dalal Al-Mulla said her client, who is an Egyptian wife of the Kuwaiti man, was given the custody of their children but the man, with the help of his mother, brother and cousin, kidnapped the children and took them overseas. She revealed that her client’s husband presented documents to prove he needed overseas treatment and then asked for lifting the travel ban imposed on the children. After the concerned authorities approved his request, he managed to leave the country with the children before the court issued its verdict.
Murder confessed: The Misdemeanor Court has decided to refer the case filed against a Kuwaiti citizen for running over martyred traffic officer Turki Al-Enezi and others during the National Days celebrations, to the head of the court for reassignment to another section for hearing. The suspect was present in the last session. When the allegations were read out, he confessed that it was a premeditated action and that he is a member of Taleban. According to the case file, the Public Prosecution had accused the suspect of belonging to a banned group, premeditated murder of a traffic officer and murder attempt of other people.
‘Pay worker’s dues’: The Labor Court presided over by Judge Abdullah Al-Jasser ordered a company to pay an Egyptian employee his complete end-of-service indemnity and dues including leave salaries and delayed monthly salaries without referring the case to the Experts Department. Lawyer Tamer Mubarak explained that his client was employed in the company as a supervisor but he never used to receive his salary on time due to which he submitted his resignation. However, the company did not pay the dues it owed him as well as his end-of-service indemnity. His client lodged a complaint at the Labor Relations Department of Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor; but when the issue still remained unresolved, the complaint was referred to the court.
Petition rejected: The Court of First Instance rejected a petition submitted by a Kuwaiti woman against the owner of an engineering office in which she accused him of providing the wrong design of a building she bought. The defense counsel Attorney Mohammad Al-Qattan proved that his client’s role was to provide the architectural design of the building and not the constructional design, adding that he did not supervise the project.
