KUWAIT CITY, Sept 26: The Pub­lic Prose­cu­tion has re­leased fash­ion­ista Ja­mal Al-Na­jada on bail of KD 2,000. She was ac­cused of in­sult­ing the ju­di­cial author­ity in an au­dio clip.

Al-Na­jada de­nied the ac­cu­sa­tion against her, in­sist­ing that she did not in­tend to of­fend the ju­di­cial author­ity.

She ex­plained that one of her fol­low­ers con­tacted her via SnapChat app and a con­ver­sa­tion en­sued be­tween them about the money laun­der­ing case for which the Pub­lic Prose­cu­tion had in­ves­ti­gated and re­leased her. She did not know that the caller was record­ing the con­ver­sa­tion and was later sur­prised to re­al­ize that the con­ver­sa­tion was cir­cu­lat­ing so widely.

Al-Na­jada apol­o­gized to the prose­cu­tion for what she had said, stress­ing that she could not of­fend the pub­lic prose­cu­tion ap­pa­ra­tus and its mem­bers “for what I saw of re­spectable and el­e­gant deal­ings.”

Man ac­quit­ted:

The Crim­i­nal Court ac­quit­ted an in­di­vid­ual who was ac­cused of il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of brain stim­u­lants with in­ten­tion to sell.

Ac­cord­ing to the case file, the de­fen­dant was ar­rested near one of the mosques in the Cap­i­tal Gov­er­norate af­ter he was found in pos­ses­sion of nar­cotic sub­stances. He was re­ferred to the Drugs Con­trol Gen­eral Depart­ment , and af­ter in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the po­lice were is­sued with a war­rant to search the man’s house where they found more drugs.

The ar­rest took place when the po­lice spot­ted the de­fen­dant walk­ing to­wards one of the mosques. When con­fronted, he ap­peared to be ner­vous, which prompted the po­lice to con­duct a pre­cau­tion­ary search on him and found drugs on him.

Rep­re­sent­ing the de­fen­dant was Lawyer Ab­dul­lah Al-Alanda who fouled the en­tire process that the po­lice took in stop­ping his client with­out ap­par­ent rea­son al­lowed by the law, as well as search­ing him and his ve­hi­cle. He high­lighted his client’s de­nial of the en­tire in­ci­dent as nar­rated by the po­lice, and also the discrepanc­ies on the con­fis­cated nar­cotic sub­stances.

❑ Kuwaiti wins case: The Court of First In­stance has ruled in fa­vor of a Kuwaiti cit­i­zen, thereby con­firm­ing his as­sign­ment to take care of his dis­abled fa­ther who re­vealed at the court that his son was the one tak­ing care of him.

On be­half of the cit­i­zen, Lawyer Mo­ham­mad Al-Sayegh filed a law­suit filed against his client’s sib­lings as well as the di­rec­tor of the Pub­lic Author­ity for the Dis­abled Af­fairs. He urged the court to make his client the of­fi­cial care­taker of his blind fa­ther whose dis­abil­ity is se­vere and per­ma­nent.

The cit­i­zen, be­ing his fa­ther’s el­dest child, had made an of­fi­cial re­quest to the author­ity but his re­quest was re­jected, be­cause he needed ap­proval of all his sib­lings as well as their fa­ther’s wife.

Court im­poses fine: The Court of Ap­peals im­posed a fine of KD 4,000 on two ad­min­is­tra­tors of a sport­ing club for threat­en­ing and in­sult­ing ref­er­ees pub­licly at a sta­dium in the pres­ence of play­ers and crowd.

Ac­cord­ing to the case files, Lawyer Ab­dul­mohsen Al-Qat­tan al­leged that the two ad­min­is­tra­tors pub­licly in­sulted his client in a man­ner that de­mean and dis­honor his per­son­al­ity.

The Pub­lic Prose­cu­tion had pre­vi­ously re­ferred the ac­cused per­sons to the Mis­de­meanor Court, which fined the first de­fen­dant KD 100 and the sec­ond one KD 50 in con­sid­er­a­tion of the moral and ma­te­rial dam­ages suf­fered by the plain­tiffs.

Ver­dict up­held:

The Court of Ap­peals up­held the ver­dict is­sued by the Court of First In­stance which obliged a real es­tate com­pany to pay a sum of KD 240,000 to a Kuwaiti cit­i­zen, and to can­cel the pur­chase or­der of a land in Bri­tain af­ter the com­pany failed to ful­fill its side of the con­tract.

Rep­re­sent­ing the cit­i­zen was Lawyer Ali Al-Wawan who ar­gued that his client man­aged to pay the full amount of the land as per the con­tract signed be­tween him and the com­pany; how­ever the com­pany failed to honor its side of the con­tract, which prompted the cit­i­zen to file a law­suit against the com­pany and plead for the an­nul­ment of the con­tract and com­pen­sa­tion of the money spent in ac­cor­dance to the con­tract.
