KUWAIT CITY, Jan 30: The Criminal Court chaired by Judge Abdullah Al- Othman has adjourned to March 11 hearing on the case involving a convicted fraudster and seven others who received millions after defrauding and cheating prominent royals and businesspersons from prison.

The suspects and their legal team were present during the last court session, while the plaintiff (fashionista and beauty expert) was equally present. The plaintiff claimed to have given the suspect KD 400,000 in cheque through a representative to purchase some items and exchanged a residential landed property in Bneid Al-Gar and that was the last time she saw the suspect.

She said the suspect sent her some precious gifts, including luxury cars, and promised to refund her money.

During the cross examination, the convicted suspect rained abuses on the woman in an unethical manner to the point that the court had to remove him from the cage inside the session room and put him in a special cell at the basement of the court. The Public Prosecution Department accused the suspects of money laundering worth KD2,593,399. They were accused of collecting the money with full awareness that it was proceed of crime. This is because they deliberately tricked the victims into parting with the money.
