He hinted that there is no alternative before him than demand for the rights of his clients. He revealed the prosecutor general and director of Hawally Prosecution Department played vital roles in the investigations to ensure that the truth prevails. It is noteworthy that the Public Prosecution charged two suspects of deliberately killing the victim by hitting him with a car
Appeal revoked: The Court of Cassation revoked the appeal filed by Islamist activist Mubarak Al-Bathali against the decision of the Court of Appeals that upheld the jail sentence of three years with hard labor and a fine of KD 10,000. Lawyer Ali Al-Ali filed the case against Islamic activist Mubarak Al- Bathali accusing him of instigating division to distort “national unity’’ by demeaning a social caliber and stirring sedition. In previous sessions, lawyer Al-Ali asserted the accusations leveled against the defendant and added the defendant has a record of similar charges. He provided the court with evidence taken from the defendant’s personal tweeter account where he used words deemed offensive to a certain social layer (Shiites) to stir sedition.
