KUWAIT CITY, June 19: The Crim­i­nal Court has July 2, 2017, to look into the case of four Rus­sians who are ac­cused of mur­der­ing a com­pa­triot and dump­ing his corpse on the shoul­der of an ex­press­way, re­ports Al-Anba daily.

With­out go­ing into de­tails the daily said the sus­pects were ar­rested be­fore they left the coun­try. It was ear­lier re­ported that the sus­pects were in­volved in an ar­gu­ment with the vic­tim over boot­leg­ging.

Death row com­muted:

The Court of Cas­sa­tion over­turned the Court of Ap­peal’s rul­ing on the death sen­tence of a po­lice of­fi­cer af­fil­i­ated to Qad­siya Po­lice Sta­tion for mur­der­ing his col­league, Saud Al-Hus­seini. The higher court com­muted the sen­tence to life im­pris­on­ment.

The Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion charged the po­lice of­fi­cer with pre­med­i­tated mur­der on Sept 11, 2016 when he used the ser­vice weapon to kill his col­league in cold blood, af­ter shoot­ing him on the

head with the in­ten­tion of killing him.
