KUWAIT CITY, July 2: The Court of Appeals dismissed the petition filed by the Kuwait Lawyers Society and upheld the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance that ordered the society to renew the membership of its former secretary Faisal Al-Qenai for the year 2018 with immediate effect. In a press statement, the defense counsel Lawyer Yaqoub Al-Sane’ said the board of directors of the society practiced some form of arbitrariness, expressing hope that Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor will impose its control on any nonprofit organization that dismisses members based on electoral motives. Lawyer Al-Sane’ explained that he had appealed with the Administration Court last March against the decision of the society to refuse membership of his client – the former secretary of the society and Honorary President of Asian Sports Press Association (ASPA) Faisal Al-Qenai. Al-Qenai had demanded the resignation of the current board of directors of the society following the ruling of the Court of Appeals which affirmed the society’s deviation from its rightful course based on personal agendas, and that it has been taking bizarre erroneous decisions that put the society in disrepute.
‘Pay back money’: The Civil Court obliged a Kuwaiti man to pay KD 15,000 in compensation to a female compatriot, in addition to the legal fee of KD 100. On behalf of the plaintiff, Attorney Eilaf Saleh sued the defendant for breach of trust after promising to marry her client, saying the man backed out of the agreement under the pretext that he cannot afford the marriage expenses. She stressed the defendant earlier convinced the plaintiff to transfer KD 15,000 into his bank account to start a project, and one year later, he claimed losing the money. He thereafter refused to marry her client. In the meantime, the plaintiff tried in vain to make the defendant pay back the aforementioned sum, so she resorted to the court supporting her claim with documents, which included statements from the aforementioned bank to prove the transfer the process.
