KUWAIT CITY, Jan 10: The Criminal Court has sentenced six GCC nationals who forged Kuwaiti citizenship to four years in prison with hard labor. The court also ordered their deportation upon completion of term.
‘Stingy’ husband sued: In a strange case, Lawyer Ayed Al- Rashidi filed lawsuit on behalf of his Kuwaiti female client seeking KD 20,000 compensation from the person she described as a “stingy” husband who neglected his financial responsibility in matrimony despite his strong fiscal status. Lawyer Al-Rashidi disclosed that his client was patient for almost 10 years during which the man declined to spend on her and their children. He promised to present documented evidences and receipts of financial responsibilities taken up by his client. The woman had been overwhelmed with debts to the extent that she became embarrassed among relatives and associates. She is also undergoing medical treatment at the Psychiatric Hospital due to psychological and nervous breakdown from attitude of the husband, according to report.
Complaint dismissed: The Commercial Circuit of the Court of First Instance dismissed the complaint lodged by a general trading and contracting company against a decision to issue a payment order of KD 10,000 to an expatriate. The court dismissed the complaint because it was filed after the end of the grace period specified by the law. Lawyer Khawlah Al-Hassawi said a payment order was issued upon her request on behalf of her client through a bank cheque of value KD 10,000 issued by the company to her client. In its complaint, the company claimed that it was unaware about the issuance of the payment order, insisting that it was unjust and did not meet the relevant conditions. The court dismissed the complaint, affirming that the company was informed about the issuance of the payment order on time as per the legal procedures through the address of the company that is recorded at Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
