A cit­i­zen was ar­rested for at­tempt­ing to stab his son-in­law at the Ah­madi court. The man ac­cused his son-in-law of ‘stalling’ pro­ce­dures to di­vorce his daugh­ter. He also ac­cused him of ver­bal as­sault. Mean­while, a cit­i­zen who had been in­dicted of mur­der in a case that took place at 360 mall, and sen­tenced to 10 years in prison was yes­ter­day ac­quit­ted by the court of ap­peal. Sep­a­rately, the court of ap­peal yes­ter­day re­jected the first in­stance court’s con­tests of de­ci­sions made by the speaker of the house on ap­point­ing three citizens at the Na­tional Assem­bly.

The Pub­lic Author­ity for Agri­cul­tural Af­fairs and Fish Re­sources (PAAAFR) is­sued a tem­po­rary ban on im­port­ing live poul­try, eggs and chicks from Al­ge­ria, where the avian flu virus H7N1 has been de­tected. PAAAFR also banned sim­i­lar im­ports from Poland and Switzer­land due to de­tect­ing the H5N8 virus there. The de­ci­sion was made as a preven­tive mea­sure taken ac­cord­ing to World Or­ga­ni­za­tion for An­i­mal Health reg­u­la­tions as well as the GCC ve­teri­nary quar­an­tine.
