KUWAIT CITY, May 29: The legal principle of ‘The accused is innocent until proven guilty’ is unfortunately not applied by many officials including those who deliberately harm their colleagues by leaking news on media including social media after the latter are caught in compromising situations, without taking into account the reputation of their families, reports Al-Shahed daily.
Investigations confirmed that one of the leaders of Ahmadi Security Directorate leaked news about catching two officers of rank ‘Colonel’ in a chalet along with a group of women. Such a move by the leader was deliberate with the aim of damaging the reputations of the officers, even though one of the officers had come to the chalet after receiving a call from his friend for discussing a matter.
In another incident, a detective officer leaked information about arresting a police officer of rank ‘Lieutenant Colonel’ for his involvement in bribery. Such acts have triggered the resentment of the senior leadership in Ministry of Interior because these leaked reports can negatively impact the general reputation of securitymen.
Stolen car sold: Jahra securitymen arrested two individuals for stealing a car which they sold to an unidentified person, reports Al-Seyassah daily. A citizen filed a report at Taima Police Station that his car, a Ford explorer, was stolen and he saw it parked in front of a house.
The Operations Unit in the Interior Ministry dispatched a security team to the house to investigate. When the detectives asked the owner of the house about the parked vehicle, he denied having knowledge about it. He called his father to ask about the car and the father confirmed that he bought it recently.
When the father arrived home accompanied by two persons, a Bedoun and a Saudi national, one of the two ran to a nearby house whereas the other was arrested. After getting permission from the owner of the house, police arrested the one who tried to escape. When the officers searched him, they found keys of the stolen car and some drugs. The suspects, along with the contraband, were referred to the Drug Control General Department for legal action.
