Arab Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 15: Kuwaiti pre­sen­ter Hal­ima Boland has said she will file a law­suit against any­one who de­fames and/or spread ru­mors about her, re­ports Al-Seyas­sah daily.

In a Twit­ter post upon re­turn from Saudi Ara­bia, she re­it­er­ated her readi­ness to sue who­ever is­sues ma­li­cious state­ments or spreads ru­mors about her in Kuwait or out­side the coun­try. She has promised to act through her le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tives across the GCC coun­tries.

Hal­ima was en­raged due to mas­sive me­dia crit­i­cism af­ter she posted a video clip show­ing an ex­pen­sive gift to given to her by a se­nior Saudi of­fi­cial.

It was later found that peo­ple be­hind the ru­mor were some fraud­sters who are ar­rested by the Saudi au­thor­i­ties and re­ferred for pros­e­cu­tion.

She thanked the Saudi po­lice for be­ing on a red alert and promptly ar­rest­ing the sus­pects be­fore her re­turn to Kuwait. The so­cial me­dia have been awash with is­sues re­lated to her among those who urged the Saudi au­thor­i­ties to ban her from en­ter­ing the coun­try and oth­ers who claimed that she used the is­sue as a me­dia stunt.

The Court of Cas­sa­tion sen­tences a Kuwaiti cit­i­zen to 8 years im­pris­on­ment with hard la­bor in a Se­cu­rity State case re­lated to his af­fil­i­a­tion to DAESH and pos­sess­ing weapons and in­tox­i­cants.

Mean­while, the Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion de­cided to re­lease a lady who in­sulted a po­lice­man in the course of his duty on a bail bond of KD 500 . The girl was charged for in­sult­ing a se­cu­ri­ty­man and pub­lish­ing the in­ci­dent on so­cial me­dia.

Phone con­tract forged:

The Mis­de­meanor Cir­cuit of the Court of First In­stance ac­quit­ted an em­ployee of a telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion com­pany who was ac­cused of forg­ing a tele­phone sub­scrip­tion con­tract un­der the name of a Kuwaiti cit­i­zen who was un­aware about such a con­tract.

The Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion ac­cused the sus­pect of is­su­ing a con­tract of two tele­phones un­der the name of the vic­tim (cit­i­zen) and putting the lat­ter’s sig­na­ture on the con­tract with­out his per­mis­sion or aware­ness. The con­tract was con­sid­ered le­gal even though it was forged, and this was con­firmed by the rel­e­vant in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

Dur­ing the court ses­sion, Lawyer Has­san Al-Ajmi stressed the lack of crim­i­nal as­pect in the al­le­ga­tions di­rected at his client.

He in­sisted that the ac­cu­sa­tions are based on sus­pi­cion and lack con­fir­ma­tion through phys­i­cal ev­i­dences, adding that there is no proof his client used the tele­phone lines and achieved any per­sonal gains through the sup­posed crime he com­mit­ted.

Fake project deals:

The Civil Cir­cuit of the Court of Ap­peals presided over by Judge Ali Al-De­baibi or­dered an in­vest­ment com­pany to pay KD 140,000 and KD 2,000 as well as com­pen­sa­tions worth KD 5,001 to two Kuwaiti women who were de­ceived into sign­ing con­tracts of fake projects. The court also de­cided ter­mi­nated the con­tracts.

Ac­cord­ing to the case file, the in­vest­ment com­pany had pub­lished an ad­ver­tise­ment about in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in Kuwait, Canada and Cyprus. A con­tract, which was worth KD 140,000 was signed be­tween the two cit­i­zens and the com­pany through an in­vest­ment port­fo­lio of yearly in­ter­est of ten per­cent as well as KD 2,000.

As time passed, the women did not see the con­tract be­ing met, and they even­tu­ally dis­cov­ered that the com­pany has lim­ited re­spon­si­bil­ity, and was not al­lowed to in­vest money for oth­ers. This fact was un­known to the plain­tiffs un­til they ob­tained a cer­tifi­cate from Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try in this re­gard.

Jail worker held:

The As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary for Cor­rec­tional and Sen­tenc­ing Af­fairs at the In­te­rior Min­istry Ma­jor-Gen­eral Faraj AlZua’bi, has re­ferred a fe­male em­ployee at the Cen­tral Prison to the Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tor’s Of­fice for help­ing her son get ac­cess to heroin who is serv­ing time in­side the prison, re­ports AlAnba daily.

Ac­cord­ing to a se­cu­rity source, the sus­pect ex­ploited her 10-year-old girl to smug­gle the drugs to her son.

Ac­cord­ing to a se­cu­rity source, the sus­pect sought per­mis­sion to visit her son ac­com­pa­nied by the mi­nor girl be­lieved to be the daugh­ter of her sis­ter and dur­ing a search the in­spec­tors found a quan­tity of heroin in­side the girl’s cloth­ing which was meant to be given to her in­mate son.
