KUWAIT CITY, Dec 12: The Personal Status Court, chaired by Judge Badar Al- Sawwagh, ordered a citizen to pay KD 30,000 to buy a house for her divorced daughter and KD 500 per month for her expenditures. Case files indicate that Attorney Hamoud Al-Rad’aan, who represented the daughter in court, accused the citizen of neglecting his divorced daughter and severing ties with her, especially since he knew that his daughter needed help after her divorce. The lawyer argued that the daughter receives KD 723 as her pension, but most of it goes to installments amounting to KD 331 and house rent of KD 350. This is in addition to the fact that she has three children.
Acquittal verdict upheld: The Misdemeanor Section in the Appeals Court, presided over by Judge Rujaib Al- Rujaib, upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance which acquitted three Kuwait Municipality employees of depleting public funds due to their failure to perform their duties well. Case files indicate the accused committed a mistake at work and this prevented the Municipality from collecting fines from companies it has contracted with as per the tenders system. The accused issued letters and receipts to the companies regarding the fines without putting the dates. Defense lawyer, Attorney Abdulmohsen Al-Mousa, argued in court that his clients admitted the mistake which they attributed to pressure at work. He pointed out the Municipality has another option – to collect the fines by using financial warrantees that the companies paid earlier.
