KUWAIT CITY, May 10: The Public Prosecution Department has withheld a petition concerning repeated rape of a minor girl filed against a Kuwaiti man in his 30s, because the testimonies lack concrete proofs and are considered mere inferences.
Details of the case indicate the prosecution officer found out that the suspect had kidnapped the victim from her residence to his apartment.
The officers used satellite movement to affirm the presence of the suspect within the vicinity of the victim’s residence, but detectives could not prove whether or not the victim was actually raped or forced to consume illicit drug. In his defense, attorney of the suspect Lawyer Mohammad Al- Husseini said the submission of the victim’s father was suspicious.
He emphasized the father only inferred in proving the allegation without concrete proofs. He stressed that evidences provided by the father were those he heard from his daughter, as he was not personally present at the scene. He noted other evidences gathered from the General Department for Criminal Evidences and forensics indicated the victim remains a virgin without any harm to her private part.
More detained: The Public Prosecution has been conducting further investigation concerning the disappearance of vital files in court, and decided to detain four new suspects; two ‘mandoubs’ and two attorneys. The court has since detained three employees (secretaries) and a clerk, and denied their bail requests. The Public Prosecution charged the defendants for hiding vital files of a case involving a real estate accused of defrauding and embezzling huge sums from citizens through the sale of dummy estates. All defendants deny the charges. It is worth mentioning the Minister of Justice has filed a report to the Public Prosecutor in relation to the same case, prompting the Public Prosecution to merge the two cases.
‘Royal’ fined: The Misdemeanor Court has fined a ruling family member and sentenced his two companions to one year imprisonment with hard labor for assaulting some citizens and a government hospital official.
