The three suspects were accused of supporting and declaring allegiance to DAESH.

The court instead sentenced the citizen to four-year imprisonment with hard labor and acquitted the expatriates of all charges. According to the case fi le, the citizen had written and published about the rights of the Amir and his authority on a public platform. The trio called for the overthrowing of the ruling system in Kuwait and distributed pamphlets in mosques as well as publicly called for embracing thoughts with the aim of destroying the basic systems of Kuwait illegally and rebelling against the state apparatus.

The Jordanian expatriate was accused of participating with the citizen by distributing the pamphlets in mosques in order to recruit youth to the banned group under the pretext that it was a call for Jihad. The Egyptian expatriate was accused of printing the pamphlets and helping in its distribution.
