KUWAIT CITY, Jan 21: The Court of Cassation rejected the appeal filed by the Public Prosecution and acquitted a Kuwaiti and his Thai friend who were charged with promoting and trafficking in heroin. Case papers indicate that a policeman in the Jahra governorate patrols testified that he was on routine duty in the suburb of Saad Al-Abdullah and he saw the two defendants driving against the flow of traffic, and that he stopped them to issue a citation.
At this time both men looked confused and the policeman saw two small bags on the front seat of the car and 9,000 dinars in cash was found on the back seat. At that time the men admitted the money belonged to them and that it was from the sale of drugs. They also admitted to consuming and possessing drugs.
