The cas­sa­tion court sen­tenced Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem AlSabah to three years in jail for in­sult­ing HH the Amir Sheikh Sabah AlAh­mad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and sev­eral dig­ni­taries. Sheikh Mo­ham­mad Al-Abdullah Al-Sabah, the states Min­is­ter of Cab­i­net Af­fairs was one of those who filed com­plaints against the con­victed royal.

False claims

The In­te­rior Min­istry de­nied yes­ter­day that a lawyer came for­ward with ev­i­dence to prove that a fake doc­tor had im­per­son­ated a Kuwaiti doc­tor who had left Kuwait nearly thirty years ago. A lawyer had posted on­line that he gave po­lice the Bangladeshi man’s ID and orig­i­nal pass­port, in ad­di­tion to the forged Kuwaiti pass­port that al­legedly be­longed to a Kuwaiti man who used to work for the Health Min­istry and also served as his spon­sor. The In­te­rior Min­istry said in a state­ment yes­ter­day that those claims are not true, and that po­lice had in­stead called the lawyer who failed to pro­vide any con­crete ev­i­dence to sup­port his claims. In­ves­ti­ga­tions in the case are still on­go­ing.

Smug­gling foiled

Po­lice ar­rested an Asian man who brought in opium hid­den in sweets in an at­tempt to smug­gle it through Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port. He was sent to the Drugs Con­trol Gen­eral De­part­ment.

Fire put out
