Court Acquits Kuwaiti Of Using Drugs After Appeal
Category: Crime News

The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Nasser Al-Haid nullified the verdict issued by the Court of First Instance, which sentenced a Kuwaiti citizen to two-year imprisonment with hard labor over alleged consumption of narcotics. The court instead acquitted the defendant.

According to the case file, the prosecution officer was at a security checkpoint with colleagues when the suspect arrived in his car. He was unable to produce his civil ID card when the officers requested for his identification document, so they ordered him into the police car.

During the process, they discovered a sachet with white-colored substance suspected to be a drug on the front passenger seat of the suspect’s vehicle. During the court session, the defense counsel Attorney Ayed Al-Rashidi countered the claim of the prosecution officer, stressing that the procedures leading to arrest and detention of his client were wrong and that the officers acted in violation of the Kuwaiti Constitution.
