Two years jail as expat admits robberies

KUWAIT CITY, June 6: The Misdemeanor Court chaired by Judge Abdullah Al-Othman sentenced an expatriate to two years in prison with hard labor and deportation after serving the term over allegation of breaking into a beauty salon owned by a Kuwaiti woman to steal.

The lawsuit filed by the plaintiff Lawyer Bushra Al-Hindal indicated her client had petitioned the Public Prosecution Department against the defendant. The case was investigated thoroughly to determine if the defendant was the culprit, so he was arrested. He admitted the crime during investigation and confirmed committing similar offenses in the past. Lawyer Al-Hindal made an oral presentation, urging the court to slam the maximum punishment on the defendant and again requested temporary compensation of KD 5001 in favor of her client.

Order cancelled: The Court of Appeals cancelled the payment order amounting to KD 5,000 issued to a citizen in favor of a telecommunications company as cost of telephone calls and monthly subscriptions. Attorney Jarrah Al-Shuraika, the citizen’s lawyer, said the telecommunications company filed a lawsuit against his client demanding KD 5,000 fee for telephone calls and subscriptions in the form of a payment order. Al-Shuriaka added they petitioned against the payment order saying there was no debt bond and the citizen knows nothing about the money. He cited the accounting report which stressed the absence of debt bond.
