KUWAIT CITY, Feb 15: The Personal Status Section in the Court of Appeals upheld the ruling of a lower court which barred an Australian man from traveling with his two children to Australia for tourism, as his exwife – an Arab woman – expressed her fear to the court that he might flee with the children and never return. Representing the ex-wife was Attorney Nuha Al-Rees, who argued that the plaintiff failed to present evidence or reassurance that he has no intention against his ex-wife, given that it is not his first time to seek the court’s permission to travel with the children to Australia, but at that time, he said it was for educational purposes. Al-Rees pointed out in court that the plaintiff wants to travel with the children and prevent her client from seeing them again.
Plot sold twice: On behalf of a citizen, lawyer Mohammad Talib filed a case against a current Municipal Council member and accused him of cheating. The lawyer alleged that the council member sold a piece of plot worth KD 238 thousand to his client who later discovered the property belongs another person, reports Al- Seyassah daily. Apparently, the victim paid KD 48,000 of the total value of the plot to the council member and the latter delayed in releasing the ownership document. The victim tried in vain to contact the suspect for amicable solution, and he was compelled to file an official complaint after the suspect declined to cooperate
