Verdict in drugs case upheld

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 27: The Court of Appeals upheld the verdict of a lower court, which had earlier acquitted three citizens of possessing narcotics and psychotropic substances with the intention to trade and consume, in addition to the possession of an unlicensed Kalashnikov assault rifle and ammunition, reports Al-Seyassah daily. The defendants attended the trial, while Attorney Muhammad Al-Jamie – lawyer for one of the accused – presented a list of requests including summoning the concerned officer. All the defendants appealed the case, explaining the circumstances and arguing that there is no incriminating evidence. They added that the arrest warrant issued by the Public Prosecution was invalid because it was based on inconclusive investigations.

Meanwhile the Court of Appeals upheld the verdict of the lower court and obliged the director of the Public Authority for the Disabled Affairs (PADA) to pay 50 dinars per month to the plaintiff, retroactively from October 2019 until the issuance of the verdict into the case, reports Al- Seyassah daily Lawyer Elaf Al-Saleh, representing the plaintiff, said her client suffers from a permanent visual impairment, and article (1) of Law 27/2008 gave him the right to receive 50 dinars per month, but PADA refrained from disbursing it without a legal justification.
