KUWAIT CITY, July 4: The Misdemeanor Section in the Court of First Instance acquitted a divorced woman and the mother of her ex-husband of exchanging insults in public. Attorney Mohammad Khalil Al-Qattan, lawyer for the divorced woman, pointed out in court that he was suspicious of the circumstances surrounding the case and the allegation against his client. He said the paperwork lacked evidence while his client denied the accusation since the beginning. He argued the incident was nothing but a statement without proof.
