KUWAIT CITY, Oct 12: The Court of Appeals ordered a government company to pay $89,000 to a small business owner for advertising work. The Court of First Instance rejected the case on the grounds that the plaintiff did not present evidence, but his defense counsel Lawyer Sultan Al-Tawala appealed and submitted new documents. He also requested that the chairman of the board of directors of the defendant company take an oath before the court that there is no contract between him and his client. The court set a session for the chairman of the company’s board of directors to take the oath, but the legal representative of the company was the one who attended.
The court insisted that the oath must be taken by the chairman of the company’s board of directors and not the legal representative. Based on the chairman’s failure to take the oath, the appeal judgment was issued to cancel the ruling of the Court of First Instance, and to judge again for the plaintiff with the amount he demanded.
