KUWAIT CITY, April 25: The Misdemeanor Court postponed until May 30, 2016 the hearing on a case involving members of the ruling family — Dhari, Khaled and Odhba Al-Fahad on one side, and two lawyers — Loai Al-Kharafi and Ibrahim Al-Kandari on the other side, for defense and settling legal cost. The two lawyers are accused of ‘insulting’ the children of the martyr Sheikh Fahad Al-Ahmad, whereas the members of the ruling family — children of martyr Sheikh Fahad Al- Ahmad — are accused of insulting and assaulting the two lawyers and preventing them from performing their duties. Also involved in the case are Ajeel Al-Shaheen who is accused of assaulting the children of martyr Sheikh Fahad Al-Ahmad, and Suleiman Khalefa who is accused of insulting and assaulting the two lawyers. The back story of the case is related to the fight in the corridors of the Justice Palace between the children of the martyr and the two lawyers together with others, during which several people from both sides sustained some injuries. Both sides filed the case in Sharq Police Station.
May 30 session set: The Cassation Court presided over by Judge Salem Al-Khudair has fixed the court session of May 30 for the hearing of an appeal filed by the suspects of the Imam Al-Sadeq Mosque bombing case against the verdict issued by a lower court. In the previous court session, the defense counsel Lawyer Abdulmohsen Al- Qattan said the lower court’s verdict violated the Constitution and misapplied it in the judgment. He faulted the court for rejecting the civil case against the Minister of Interior and Minister of Finance as well as the Director General of Customs Department. Lawyer Al-Qattan pointed out the wrongly misapplied inferential evidences, saying the violation is conspicuous in the documents.
Company liquidated: The Commercial Section in the Court of Appeals decided to dissolve and liquidate a major commercial contracting company, and ordered the appointment of a liquidator. In a case filed by Attorney Khola Mubarak Al-Hassawi, the court’s appointment of the liquidator will lead to liquidation of the company and its debts. The liquidator will be in charge of giving the partners all the information they demand concerning the liquidation. Al-Hassawi affirmed the court ordered division of the company’s assets between the partners after settling debts and liabilities. The decision is in response to the plaintiff’s wish to dissolve the company legally between her and her partners due to severe conflict and loss of trust.
‘Bedouins offended’: A lawyer filed a case against a female citizen, accusing her of offending ‘Bedouins’ (desert dwellers) through a video clip she posted on a social communication media website. The lawyer said the accused was seen in the video clip uttering indecent and racist words against ‘Bedouins’ who are part of the social texture of Kuwaiti society, let alone the fact that such acts are forbidden by the Islamic teachings and public ethics.
