Case in alleged murder attempt on Fadhalah frozen
Drug baron caught with 63 kilos of hashish, shabu hidden in hole
KUWAIT CITY, Dec 6: Narcotic officers from the General Department of Drug Control arrested a drug baron in possession of 63 kilograms of hashish and shabu, which he carefully kept hidden in a hole at a livestock pen in Kabd area.
The Department of Public Relations and Security Media at Ministry of Interior stated that undercover agents kept tab on the activities of the suspect concerning domestic drug trade and gathered enough evidence in that regard. He was busted while visiting the area to retrieve the drugs for sale after the officers had secured a warrant to search the hideout that served as illicit drug storage instead of a livestock pen. He had kept the contraband in two boxes inside the hole, and admitted the offense upon his arrest. He has since been referred to the concerned authority for prosecution.
Case frozen: Lawyer (Dr) Khalid Al-Kafifah, counsel to the suspect in the alleged assassination attempt on Chairman of the Central System for Remedy of Status of Illegal Residents Saleh Al-Fadhalah, disclosed that the Department of Public Prosecution has decided to freeze the case against his client after investigators concluded his client is innocent and that the allegation lacks substance, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
In a statement, Al-Kafifah affirmed that freezing the case has ruled out any suspicion of crime by the defendant against the state’s internal security, noting the crime number has since been deleted and the case withheld administratively in the complaints’ register.
Dr Al-Kafifah said he’s being professional about the case and would never deal with it based on rumor that could jeopardize the interest of his client. He concluded that many people who used to attack Bedouns have turned back to attacking Al-Fadhalah now.
