KUWAIT CITY, Feb 29: The Court of Appeals sentenced to seven-year imprisonment a Kuwaiti extremist who was convicted of planning to kill security personnel, insulting the Amir and the rulers of the GCC, and advocating for ISIS on social media platforms. According to the case file, the accused was arrested in Lebanon under Kuwaiti security coordination. Earlier, the Criminal Court had ruled that he be imprisoned for two years for insulting the Amir, but acquitted him of joining ISIS. The Public Prosecution had charged him with issuing insults via video clips against the ruling regimes of two GCC countries, in a manner deemed harmful to the country’s national interests. He was also charged with deliberately misusing a means of communication – mobile phone – to post such videos on the TikTok application, as well as of joining and advocating for joining a banned organization – ISIS – that aims to destroy the basic systems in the country.
