Trio accused of drug peddling absolved

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 29: An Egyptian expatriate was found dead inside his apartment in Mahboula area. According to security sources, when securitymen from Fintas Police Station received information from a man who said he found the lifeless body of his friend on the floor of the latter’s apartment in Mahboula area, they rushed to the location and examined the corpse to realize the deceased had died of natural causes and they did not suspect any foul play. The corpse was referred to the Forensics Department and the case was registered as natural death.

Trio acquitted: The public prosecutor has issued a decision to close the file of three Egyptians who were unjustly arrested and accused of trafficking in narcotic substances, reports Al-Jarida daily quoting judicial sources. The same sources said the Prosecutor has ordered the immediate release of the Egyptians who were arrested by a plainclothes policeman and accused of trafficking in drugs. The sources revealed the Egyptians were arrested after the Attorney-General Counselor Dhirar Al-Asousi issued arrest warrants against three persons. The arresting officer was given the names and addressed of the suspects, but the officer ended up arresting the Egyptians. During interrogation the officer said he mistakenly arrested the Egyptians, an act which is deemed a violation of the rights and freedoms of the people and also violates the Constitution and the law. The Public Prosecutor will inform the Interior Ministry of its decision to shelve the case and take the erring officer to task.

According to security sources, customs officer suspected the passenger who had arrived at the airport from Egypt. They checked his luggage to find the illicit drugs concealed well inside it.
