KUWAIT CITY, Feb 4: The Court of Appeals upheld the verdict issued by a lower court which acquitted a expat of forging a customary document – “an acknowledgment of receipt of a debt” – in the amount of KD 170,000, and falsely attributing it to the plaintiff, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

The legal counsel representing the plaintiff said the defendant, at a previous date, had issued a total performance order against the plaintiff, obligating him to pay him an amount of KD 170,000. The accused had fabricated an acknowledgment of receipt of the debt, based on which the aforementioned payment order was issued, by adding the phrase “and the cash amounts until the value of the cheque is cashed”. As a result, the incident was reported. During the court session, the counsel representing the defendant Lawyer Inaam Haider highlighted the grave error, the contradiction in the descriptive registration, the lax reporting, the maliciousness of the accusation, and its fabrication.
