KUWAIT CITY, Oct 3: The Court of Appeals upheld the ruling issued by a lower court which sentenced a man to life imprisonment for impersonating a sheikh on Instagram with the intention of defrauding a lawyer, seizing a diamond ring and sums of more than KD 20,000, and then blackmailing her by posting inappropriate clips on social media sites.

The complainant stated that the accused deceived her by impersonating a member of the ruling family and luring her as a lawyer to consult her legally. She was surprised when he assaulted her, and then he tricked her into marrying and defrauding her and seizing a diamond ring and sums of money.

According to the case file, the father of the three girls visited the healer in his residence in Mahboula in order to do the incantation on his daughters to rid them of envy. However, they left crying and told their father that the “healer” did immoral things to their bodies and harassed them. The father then filed a report with the Ministry of Interior. After investigations, the case was referred to the prosecution and then to the court.
