Court Acquits Arab Mason Of Carrying Tramadol Pills For Trade
Category: Crime News

The Court of Appeals, presided over by Judge Anwar Al-Enezi, upheld the verdict of the First Instance Court which acquitted an Arab mason of possessing a large number of Tramadol pills for trading and personal consumption.

Details of the case indicate that a detective from the Drug Control General Department (DCGD) conducted investigations which led him to the mason who he suspected of possessing drugs for trading and personal consumption.

The detective later obtained a warrant from the prosecution, leading to the arrest of the suspect.

The detective said the suspect put a medical bandage in the right pocket of his ‘dishdasha’ (national dress) containing red tablets. When he was interrogated, the suspect said the tablets were for personal use.

A report from the Criminal Investigation Department disclosed the tablets found in the possession of the suspect were Tramadol pills which affect the brain, whereas the urine test of the suspect came out negative.

Lawyer for the accused, Attorney Abdulaziz Al Rukhaimi, pushed for nullification of the warrant of arrest on grounds that the investigations were inconclusive and he requested for acquittal of his client due to the absence of incriminating evidence.
