KUWAIT CITY, July 7: The Court of Appeals upheld the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance, which acquitted four individuals who are accused of forging official documents, and ordered the imprisonment of another defendant for seven years with hard labor.

According to the case file, the arresting officer testified that one of the suspects knew that another one among them had knowledge of selling cars through auction and through the mediation of another. The officers’ investigations revealed that the two suspects falsified stamps and signatures to attribute them to employees of one of the companies through the use of a scanner, and submitted them to the unsuspecting person, taking advantage of a previous relationship between them.

They then asked him to mediate with the third defendant, who approved those forged documents, despite knowing that they were forged, and agreed to transfer the ownership of thirty cars to the companies that transport goods. During the court session, Lawyer Enaam Haider, who was present with the second defendant, pleaded the innocence of her client, basing her defense on the invalidity of the investigations conducted, which she described as “not serious”.
