Ruling withheld against duo in forgery case
KUWAIT CITY, Dec 4: The Court of Appeals overturned the verdict of First Instance Court that had earlier acquitted a citizen and a worker at the Traffic Department, and instead, decided to refrain from issuing a verdict against the first defendant (citizen) who was accused of using his colleague’s identification details to transfer ownership of a motorcycle. The Public Prosecution accused the concerned civil employee (second defendant) at the Traffic Department of forging official document, which allowed the citizen to sign it instead of the plaintiff – in order to complete transfer of the motorcycle’s ownership legally . Representing the plaintiff, Attorney Nasser Al-Basheer argued that his client was surprised to find out that the ownership of his motorbike has been transferred to someone else without his knowledge and approval, prompting him to file the complaint.
