Egyptian’s acquittal upheld: The Court of Appeals chaired by Judge Anwar Al-Enezi upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance that acquitted an Egyptian construction worker of possessing Tramadol for consumption and sale purposes. The case file indicates anti-narcotics men received a tip off concerning suspicious activities of the defendant, and a trap was set for him, in the course of which officers obtained search and arrest warrant from the Public Prosecution before raiding his residence. The officers found a bandage containing an unspecified quantity of narcotics inside the right pocket of his dishdasha, and he admitted the contraband was meant for personal consumption and sale. However, he denied the allegation in court. He claimed the officers did not find anything on him or inside his apartment during the search. He also denied knowledge of items the officers alleged to have recovered underneath his bed. Attorney Abdul-Aziz Al-Rukhaimi, in his defense, faulted submissions of the officers and the search warrant. He urged the court to clear his client of the allegation.
