KUWAIT CITY, June 26: The Court of Appeals upheld the ruling of the Criminal Court that acquitted a citizen of money laundering and usury, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Case files indicate that the State Security Department conducted investigations in response to the complaint of a local bank submitted to the Public Prosecution about a citizen who deposited cash amounting to tens of thousands of Kuwaiti dinars into his bank account within a short period, raising suspicion on the source of such funds.
In addition, he allegedly paid the loans of other citizens with the same bank, which prompted the security authorities to summon the defendant for investigation and then referred him to the prosecution. The prosecution charged the citizen with money laundering and usury based on the suspicious deposits into his account, including payments for loans. By Munif Nayef Al-Seyassah Staff and Agencies
