KUWAIT CITY, May 21: The Court of Appeals refrained from imposing punishment on a brigadier general and a lieutenant colonel in the Ministry of Interior and released them on bail of KD10,000 for good behavior; after sentencing them to four years in prison for torturing juveniles. The Public Prosecution charged the defendants with torturing and beating two juveniles to force them to confess and give statements and information about the accused in a felony case. These juveniles stated they did not remember the circumstances of a video clip related to the case that was shown to them.

Meanwhile, the Constitutional Court, headed by Judge Fouad Zuwaid, has rejected the appeal against the unconstitutionality of Nationality Law No. 44/1994, considering that naturalized citizens are originally Kuwaitis, due to the lack of interest among those who filed the appeal. In another context, the court rejected all electoral petitions in view of the absence of a litigant due to the dissolution of the National Assembly
