Duo ac­quit­ted:

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

The Crim­i­nal Court ac­quit­ted two Kuwaiti ci­ti­zens who are ac­cused of phys­i­cally at­tack­ing a com­pa­triot in­side a garage in Shuwaikh area fol­low­ing a dis­agree­ment over car rac­ing in Su­laibiya area, says Al-Seyas­sah.

The Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tion had charged the two ci­ti­zens of beat­ing the plain­tiff and caus­ing in­juries that led the vic­tim to suf­fer­ing from se­vere pain through­out his body ac­cord­ing to the med­i­cal re­port.

Ac­cord­ing to the case file, the first de­fen­dant and the plain­tiff had re­port­edly dis­agreed over a mat­ter con­cern­ing car rac­ing on “In­sta­gram”. At some stage, the first de­fen­dant be­gan rais­ing his fin­ger to point to­wards the face of the plain­tiff. A shout­ing match en­sued, which snow­balled into an ex­change of blows at sen­si­tive parts of the bod­ies. The sec­ond de­fen­dant joined the fight when it turned phys­i­cal.

The de­fense coun­sel Lawyer Ab­dul­mohsen Al-Qat­tan urged the court to dis­miss the case, in­sist­ing that the al­le­ga­tions were spu­ri­ous and lacked jus­ti­fi­ca­tions. He stressed that there were no con­crete ev­i­dences against his clients.
