KUWAIT CITY, Sept 5: The Criminal Court refused to release a citizen and his wife who were accused of killing their three and a half year old daughter. The court then postponed hearing on the case until Oct 3, 2016 for the arrest officer to present his statements.
Securitymen presented information and evidence to the 26-yearold citizen through intensive investigations, during which he confessed that with the knowledge and participation of his wife they committed the crime claiming they were under the influence of drugs and brain stimulants. Investigations revealed the suspect tied the little child and covered her body. He bought a freezer on the fateful day and put the body inside. It was noted that the corpse of the girl had burn marks on the shoulders, legs and there were signs of torture.
Results of preliminary investigations conducted by detectives showed that the suspected couple had been negligent towards their four children, while the husband was dismissed from his job in a private company for bad behavior.
Hearing adjourned: The Misdemeanor Court adjourned until Oct 3, 2016 the hearing on a lawsuit filed by former Chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council Judge Faisal Al-Murshid against ex-MP Musallam Al-Barrak over an incident in Erada Square. The Public Prosecution charged Al-Barrak with defamation, public assault and attack on the judiciary.
It then ordered precautionary detention of Al-Barrak for 10 days to complete investigations. Earlier, Al-Murshid, his deputy in the council – Judge Yousef Al-Mutawa and Judge Ibrahim Al-Seif submitted a petition against the defendant and the online Twitter account ‘Honor of the Nation’.
They accused him of initiating a seminar in the square and posting contents of the seminar on Twitter. They alleged that Al-Barrak in person and as owner of the Twitter account embarrassed them, the judiciary and Kuwaiti judges, through his actions.
