KUWAIT CITY, Jan 14: The Criminal Court postponed until March 7 the announcement of its verdict on Lebanese Hezbollah financing terrorism cell case after the recent session that lasted for more than six hours, when the defense panel presented their arguments, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

The case dates back to November 2021, when the State Security officers arrested several individuals who allegedly gave financial support for Hezbollah. After the investigations, the Public Prosecution filed State Security charges against 11 citizens and seven expatriates working in money exchange centers that processed the alleged fund transfers to Hezbollah.

In May 2022, the court held a closed-door session to deliberate on the case. At the time, the defendants denied the charges, stressing that they do not support Hezbollah and they have been working in a charitable committee for 30 years. They added this committee is helping orphans in Lebanon and other countries.
