KUWAIT CITY, Feb 9: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Nayef Al-Dahoum sentenced one of the ruling family members to seven-year imprisonment with hard labor, and ordered him to refund a sum of KD 157,000 as well as fined him double the amount, after convicting him of forging university law degree. According to the case file, the defendant – a captain in the Ministry of Interior – was accused of forging academic certificates, and unlawfully appropriating financial benefits granted to him due to his academic stature.
Meanwhile, the Misdemeanor Court decided to adjourn to early March the case concerning a brawl that occurred at the Sulaibikhat Cemetery. The National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim and his two brothers Khaled and Fahad claimed a civil compensation of KD 5,001 from Nayef Salem Al-Marzouq, who in turn claimed a civil compensation also of KD 5,001 from Khaled and Fahad Al- Ghanim and other defendants.
