KUWAIT CITY, Nov 24: The Court of First Instance acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen and his aunt who were accused of defrauding a Kuwaiti woman by appropriating KD 40,000 to buy a chalet in Khairan area. The Public Prosecution charged the accused and his aunt with defrauding the victim with the intention of provoking her to commit an error by fraudulent means, by displaying illustrative pictures and maps and moving them to the project site, which would make her believe that there was a project.
After being convinced, she handed her the amount and signed an agreement to buy the chalet. Lawyer Abdul Mohsen Al-Qattan affirmed that the elements of the crime of fraud were not available, as well as the moral element that must be available for the crime of fraud to take place. He stressed that the project that the accused tried to make the victim believe in its existence must be a false project, but if the project is real and exists, then fraud does not exist, which is the material pillar that must be available for the crime.
