Jail extended for Kuwaiti, Iraqi in money-wash case

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 15: The Detention Renewal Judge has decided to extend the detention of the Kuwaiti artist, identified as A.A., and an Iraqi expatriate, identified as A.S., who are accused of money laundering and drug smuggling as well as manufacturing intoxicants. The suspects were arrested after the Drugs Control General Department received information about a citizen who imports drugs and sells them. After a month of investigations, security authorities obtained an arrest warrant from the Public Prosecution and managed to arrest the suspect in a trap. During interrogations, he revealed that he has a shop where he manufactures the drug using chemicals imported from Europe under the pretext that the chemicals are cosmetics that he sells in his beauty center. He also disclosed the identity of his Iraqi partner and led securitymen to the location where he stored the drugs and chemicals.

16 sentenced: The Criminal Court sentenced 16 citizens accused of repeating the controversial speech of former MP Musallam Al-Barrak to two years in jail and ordered them to pay KD 3,000 each for suspending implementation of the verdict. The Public Prosecution filed a State security case against these citizens including Mundher Muhammad Habeeb, Abdul-Wahhab Muhammad Abdullah, Abbas Muhammad Ghloum, Fawaz Muhammad Al-Bahar, Abdullah Saleh Mansour, Abdullah Jassem Al-Saadoun, Yusuf Bassam Al-Shatti, Muhammad Fuad Al-Arimaan, Bandar Nahaar Al-Muteiri, Mishari Muhammad Al-Muteiri, Saad Murdhi Al-Rashidi, Nasser Muhammad Al-Muteiri and Musaaed Muhammad Abdullah.

Citizen acquitted: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted a citizen of giving false testimony under oath that his sister stole a car in front of their house. Court files indicate the accused gave false testimony when his brother- in-law filed a complaint at a police station saying his sister stole the car. Attorney Abdul-Muhsin Al-Qattan, lawyer for the accused, raised doubt on the narration of the incident. He pointed out the records of the detective officer who handled the case affirmed that the accused denied the incident, indicating the entire issue was due to a family dispute.

Pension disputed: The Court of Appeals has obligated the Public Authority for Social Security to include the period spent in military college in the service period of an army officer for determining his pension entitlement. Lawyer Misfer Ayed Al-Ajmi, who filed a case on behalf on the army officer, explained that the court’s ruling involves correct application of the legal provisions in adding the relevant periods prior to the actual period of service such as time spent in military colleges, institutions and academies. Based on that, the calculation of pension must take into account the time spent for studies along with the actual period of service. The authority implemented this verdict by including the time spent on military studies in the service period of the army officer.
