The Criminal Court acquitted two citizens of possessing narcotic pills with the intention of consuming the pills, says Al-Seyassah.
According to the prosecution, the arresting officer was on routine patrol in Andalus where he spotted a car parked in a dusty yard and upon approaching it, he saw two individuals who appeared intoxicated.
After inquiring about their identities, the officer received information from the central command that the two are citizens wanted by law for involvement in a civil case. The officer also found in the suspects’ possession three plastic packets containing white substance which the lab report described as narcotics.
Representing the two citizens was Attorney Inaam Haydar who argued in court that the arresting officer did not follow procedures as he searched and arrested her clients without a warrant from the Public Prosecution, in addition to failure to present substantial evidence.
