KUWAIT CITY, Jan 14: The Prosecution has called for the death penalty for child killers saying violence against minors has increased significantly in the Kuwaiti society, reports Al-Qabas daily. The Prosecution has pleaded death penalty for the murdered of the five-year-old Fatima by her mother and lover, the atrocious crime that has bled the conscience of humanity.
The prosecutor said a brother may kill his brother and this is a crime in depth in history, and the wife may kill her husband because of oppression and boredom, but a mother kills her children is an unforgivable crime, and we demand the death penalty. Earlier, police investigations had revealed that the mother’s boyfriend had beaten to death and the mother took the body of her daughter and put in the bathroom of the family house and said she tripped and fell and died.
A security source said the Operations Room of the Interior Ministry received a distress call from the mother claiming her daughter had fallen in the bathroom and became unconscious. Acting on information, a team of rescue men went to the location, examined the body, and declared the child was already dead. The officers found traces of bruises on the body and referred it to Forensics for autopsy. During questioning, the mother said the child accompanied her on a visit to the boyfriend and she started crying without cause, so the two of them continued beating her until she became silent and later realized she was dead.
Apparently, the woman is divorced and she connived with the boyfriend to lie that the child had tripped and died inside the bathroom. The mother is said to have placed the body in the bathroom before notifying the Operations Room about the incident amid tears. The mother confessed that her boyfriend had beaten the child to death after he hurt her with a piece of cigarette. The man admitted beating the child but insisted the mother had participated in the act, although they had no intention of killing her.
Death probed: The corpse of the Kuwaiti who apparently died after falling from a glider in the chalets area, south of the country, has been referred to Forensics, reports Al-Rai daily. After the Operations Room of the Interior Ministry received a report on the incident paramedics and police rushed to the spot and took the body of the victim to the Adan Hospital in an air ambulance but he was declared dead on arrival. Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
