‘Pay comp in loss of kin’
Trio acquitted of theft
KUWAIT CITY, March 14: The Cassation Court has set a new unprecedented principle in civil compensation cases when it rejected to push for triple aging of a lawsuit.
The court ordered a local insurance company and a Kuwaiti citizen to pay KD 90,000 to a Kuwaiti family for the death of their father and their eldest son in a traffic accident that also resulted in serious injuries to two children.
Lawyer Yousef Hussein represented the family in their appeal for compensation for material and moral damages.
The Criminal Court acquitted three citizens of stealing valuable items, including a computer.
Case files indicate the Public Prosecution charged the trio with breaking the window of the car and carting away valuables which were inside the plaintiff’s car in Amghara’s scrap yard.
