KUWAIT CITY, Mar 29: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen and his aunt who were accused of committing fraud and swindling KD 52,000 from another citizen after deceiving him into buying a chalet in Sabah Al-Ahmad marine area.
The Public Prosecution had charged the accused and his aunt with deceiving the victim. During the court session, the defense counsel Lawyer Abdul Mohsen Al-Qattan stressed that the elements of the fraud crime were not available against his clients.
He highlighted the collapse of the moral element that must be available for the crime to occur, in addition to the absence of evidence.
Lawyer Al-Qattan said, “The project that the accused tried to make the victim believe in its existence must be a false project. This means that fraudulent methods do not exist in this regard. This is the basis of the material pillar that must be available for the crime of fraud.”
Al-Qattan added that, “The material element of the fraud crime is achieved by the act of fraud, which results in the delivery of money. There is a causal relationship between fraud and receipt. In addition, the means used for this pillar are fraudulent methods and the disposal of money that does not belong to the accused. He does not have the right to dispose of it and take a false name or an incorrect capacity”.
