Man acquitted in drugs case
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.”
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.
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.
