KUWAIT CITY, July 27: The First Instance Court (Family Court Circuit) dismissed the lawsuit filed by a Kuwaiti woman against her husband and his mother, requesting the court to grant her custody of her children.
The woman said her husband did not shoulder the financial expenses of the family, and since their children are living with her, she requested the court to grant her the right to keep them under her guardianship.
Attorney Abdulmuhssen Al-Qattan, the paternal grandmother’s lawyer, pointed out the mother is not capable of having custody of the children especially since she admitted to having indecent relationships with more than one man.
He added that due to the keenness of his client to raise her grandchildren properly, she requested for custody. He affirmed the right of the mother to see her children is guaranteed provided it is done in the presence of the grandmother.
Man acquitted: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted an individual who was accused of drug possession and peddling.
The defense counsel Lawyer Salem Sha’aban countered the allegation against his client, affirming that his client had denied the accusations from the beginning.
He insisted that the prosecution has not been able to prove the allegations against his client with concrete evidence, stressing that there was situation that warranted the arrest of his client when the officer did so.
