KUWAIT CITY, May 10: The Administrative Court, headed by Judge Waleed Al-Mazkour, cancelled the ‘very good’ job performance rating given to the head of the Research and Social Studies Department in the Deanship of Community Service and Continuing Education at Kuwait University for the year 2014.

Attorney Khawla Al-Hasawi filed a case on behalf of the department head, indicating her client was informed on Feb 8, 2015 about the ‘very good’ rating that he got for his performance in 2014. However, he complained about the rating so Al-Hasawi filed the case.

Al-Hasawi asked the court to cancel the job performance rating and its consequences, urging the court to oblige the university to pay temporary compensation of KD 5,001 to her client. She argued the evaluation of her client’s performance for 2014 was malicious, because the rating was given after her client submitted a request to take an observer post which was occupied by his direct superior.

Citizen acquitted: The Court of Appeals upheld the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance which acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen of charges of nonpayment of a telephone bill amounting to KD 15,281 to Ministry of Communications.

During the court session, Lawyer Ahmad Al-Failakawi, who represented the Kuwaiti citizen, presented a set of documents which proved that the ministry demanded his client to pay the bill after 15 years of consumption due to which such a demand is considered invalid as per Article 438 of the Civil Law. He also presented a document which indicated the dates the telephone service was launched and stopped.
