KUWAIT CITY, May 8: The Criminal Court will next week hold the first trial session of the case filed against the mother of the Kuwaiti citizen Farah Akbar’s murderer over her participation in publishing on an online news account some false news about the victim whom her son had murdered. Earlier, the Public Prosecution had charged the news account with publishing information that can be deemed as damaging to the dignity of the family members of the slain victim Farah Akbar via the media outlet on Twitter, which is in violation of Law No. 8/2016 that regulates electronic media administration for the account.

It also charged her with publicly spreading false news intended to harm the reputation of the victim and her family members, and participating by agreement with the news account in committing the crime attributed to her by giving facts that would prejudice their dignity, and the crime that occurred. During investigations, the victim’s husband testified that the accused appeared in video and audio clips, which were published on the news website’s Twitter account, in which she falsely claimed the existence of an emotional relationship between her son and his wife before her death. He said the case of his wife’s murder has become an issue of public opinion, adding that the published clips were made available for viewing by all, and that the number of followers of that account, which is licensed by the Ministry of Information, exceeds one million.By Jaber Al-Hamoud Al-Seyassah Staff
