KUWAIT CITY, Nov 8: On behalf of a Kuwaiti lady client, Attorney Ayed Al- Rashidi has filed a petition against the Ministry of Interior and requested compensation of KD 40,000 on allegations of spying on his client and placing her under surveillance to monitor her private life using the ministry’s automated system. Al-Rashidi explained that his client filed a lawsuit against a male compatriot who issued her a dud cheque of half a million dinars and the suspect was sentenced to three years imprisonment with hard labor. However, the verdict wasn’t enforced and the defendant started following her everywhere. She claimed that the defendant had used his influence and relationship with some employees of the Interior Ministry to trail her whereabouts, thus she filed a complaint with the Surveillance and Inspection Department against the ministry’s employees. Attorney Al-Rashidi indicated her client has suffered psychological trauma because she feels her personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution are violated.
Man acquitted: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted an individual who was accused of breaching trust. According to the case file, the plaintiff explained that he interacted with the defendant over the leasing of a real-estate for which they had signed contracts. When the defendant had asked him to sign two new contracts on blank papers, he agreed because of the good business relations he shared with the defendant. During the court session, Attorney Zaid Al- Khabbaz stressed that the complaint was malicious and that the plaintiff did not lodge the complaint on time.
