KUWAIT CITY, May 28: Finally, the Kuwaiti justice is knocking on the door of those allegedly involved in the much talked about Eurofighter deal and the Permanent Investigation Committee for the Trial of Ministers has decided to refer the issue to the Ministers Court, reports Al-Rai daily. Informed sources told the daily, the case papers show five people, including a former minister, are suspected of appropriating public funds in the aircraft deal and the court session is expected to look into this issue soon.

According to observers’ expectations, it is likely that other officials will be summoned for interrogation, and some ‘others’ believed to be linked to the issue to listen to their testimonies and take down their statements to expand investigations into the case from various aspects based on the data.
