KUWAIT CITY, Sept 28: The Court of First In­stance presided over by Judge Khaled Al-Rukaibi or­dered a tenant to va­cate a shop he is rent­ing from the owner and pay the lat­ter KD 2,500 for us­ing the premises due to non-pay­ment of the agreed rent amount.

Lawyer Mo­ham­mad Khalil AlQat­tan filed the case on be­half of the leaser based on Ar­ti­cle 1 of Law No. 39/1990 and Ar­ti­cles 10 and 20/1 of Law No. 35/1978 re­gard­ing rent­ing real es­tate, stress­ing that the rents should be paid when they are due.

He af­firmed that the tenant, when he did not pay the agreed rent when due, had vi­o­lated the pro­vi­sions of the con­tract.

Mean­while, the Fam­ily Court or­dered a Kuwaiti ci­ti­zen to di­vorce his wife due to the harms he caused her, and give her en­tire rights fol­low­ing the di­vorce.

Lawyer Zaid Al-Khab­baz had filed the law­suit on the be­half of the wife, af­ter her hus­band kicked her out along with her daugh­ter. He pre­sented some What­sApp mes­sages which proved that the hus­band kicked the wife out of the house many times in the past.

Lawyer Al-Khab­baz re­vealed that the hus­band also did not pay for the ex­penses of the fam­ily.




The Crim­i­nal Court ad­journed un­til Oct 18, 2017 the hear­ing on a case filed against a for­mer MP ac­cused of trick­ing a woman to sleep with him.

The court de­cided Wed­nes­day to con­duct a closed ses­sion dur­ing which the ac­cused MP was brought in but he de­nied the charges.

The vic­tim’s lawyer de­manded for civil tem­po­rary com­pen­sa­tion of KD 5,001 for dam­ages caused to his client.

The woman said she ap­proached the ac­cused in June 2015 to help her get a job con­sid­er­ing he was a pub­lic fig­ure as he was a mem­ber of Par­lia­ment then. She added that he got her num­ber and he started tex­ting her love mes­sages.

The Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion had ear­lier re­ferred the com­plaint filed by the fe­male ci­ti­zen to the Crim­i­nal Court, ac­cus­ing the for­mer MP of trick­ing her into sleep­ing with him af­ter promis­ing her sev­eral times that he will marry her only to refuse to of­fi­cially doc­u­ment their cus­tom­ary mar­riage later.

‘Pay ex-wife al­imony’:

The Court of First In­stance or­dered a Kuwaiti ci­ti­zen to pay al­imony of KD 1,800 along with KD 600 as al­imony for the wait­ing pe­riod to his ex-wife.

The coun­sel to the ex-wife Lawyer Mo­ham­mad Khalil Al-Qat­tan re­vealed that his client was di­vorced with­out be­ing con­sulted.

He stressed that the al­imony amount, as per Ar­ti­cle 165 of the Per­sonal Sta­tus Law, is es­ti­mated based on the monthly ex­penses and the fi­nan­cial con­di­tions at the time of de­serv­ing the al­imony.

Lawyer Al-Qat­tan ex­plained that es­ti­mat­ing the al­imony amount up to the judge but based on the con­di­tion that it must not ex­ceed the ex­penses of one year.

He based his de­fense on Ar­ti­cle 161, which is re­lated to the al­imony for the wait­ing pe­riod af­ter the di­vorce, and on Ar­ti­cle 163, which states that the al­imony is con­sid­ered as a loan de­served by the di­vorced wife.
