Arab expatriate found not guilty of abducting his daughter

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 25: In a recent ruling, the Court of Appeals upheld the verdict of a lower court, acquitting an Arab expatriate who was accused of kidnapping his daughter from his Filipino ex-wife and taking her to his home country. This case involved a sensitive family matter that led to allegations of psychological and domestic violence, with the child being kept away from her mother.

Attorney Jassem Al-Twaij represented the accused in the case and successfully argued that the elements of kidnapping and domestic violence were not present. He emphasized the client’s good intentions, highlighting that the child was legally under the father’s custody, and not with the ex-wife. He also cited the exceptional circumstances that forced his client to return to his home country, bringing his daughter with him, as he feared that the ex-wife might attempt to take the child away.

The verdict underscores the complexities of family-related cases and the need to carefully consider the circumstances surrounding them. In this instance, the court concluded that the accused had not committed the alleged offenses.
