KUWAIT CITY, Feb 18: The Criminal Court presided over by Judge Abdullah Al-Othman sentenced to death by hanging a Indian drug dealer who was described as notorious.
According to the case file, the defendant would wrap drugs in nylon bags, place them in different places, and then send the “location” of the site to the customers via WhatsApp.
The payment was made via a bank link so that he remained in a state of concealment. The detectives focused on some evidence in the accused’s mobile phone, as it was found that there were 50 sales he had made in this innovative way. He was then arrested and brought to trial, and it was discovered that he had been practicing the drug trade for years.
In another case, the Criminal Court convicted eight citizens who are accused of stealing weapons and ammunition from the National Guard for the purpose of trafficking in them. It sentenced a Sergeant officer of the National Guard to 15-year imprisonment, and sentenced another defendant to 13 years in prison, for their involvement in stealing weapons and ammunition arsenal.
The other defendants were sentenced to two-three years of jail term and fined KD 5,000. The court had charged the eight defendants, including a citizen, in the first trial session, with two counts of seizing public funds and possession of weapons and ammunition without the license for the purpose of trafficking. However, the defendants had denied all the charges.
