KUWAIT CITY, April 25:  The Public Prosecution has extended detention of a lawyer involved in a case filed by Attorney Ayed Mahadi Al-Rashidi on behalf of the State Security Department, accusing the former of attacking Kuwaitis by describing them as “hybrids.”

Al-Rashidi alleged the accused posted a statement on his official Twitter page demeaning Kuwait and its government.  He purportedly spread false information about internal affairs which negatively affected confidence and integrity of Kuwait before other countries and governments across the world.

The malicious statement claimed that Kuwait grants citizenship to “hybrids and illegitimate children”, so this is considered conflict of national interest.  He urged the court to apply Article 15 of law number 31/1970 with some of the amended provisions of Penal Code number 16/1960.

Father, son jailed: The Court of Appeals has upheld the verdict of the lower court and sentenced a Kuwaiti to 5 years imprisonment and his father to 10 years in absentia for fighting alongside the terrorist organization DAESH in Syria, reports Al-Anba daily.

According to court papers the father entered Turkey via Syria and joined DAESH.

The son reportedly who went in search of the father was seized by the organization and forced to join the organization.

When the Russian forces intervened in Syria he escaped to Turkey and surrendered to the security authorities and was subsequently sent back to Kuwait.

Kuwaiti detained: Public Prosecution had ordered the detention of a Kuwaiti for 21 days for publishing something offensive about the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on his personal account on the social media, reports Al-Anba daily.

The suspect was reportedly arrested by the Electronic Crime Prevention Department.

In another case, the Sentences Renewal Judge has refused to release a Kuwaiti who had been arrested for publishing offensive statements about the Attorney-General, Counselor Dirar Al-Assousi, against the backdrop of accepting the last batch of prosecutors.
