Category: Kuwait Local News

The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Nasser Salem Al-Heed has postponed the hearing of a State Security case, which was filed against 12 Kuwaiti citizens for adopting a radical ideology and supporting DAESH terrorist group, until the defense of four of the suspects is decided. According to the case file, the Public Prosecution accused the suspects of joining a banned group that follows a radical ideology and is against the country’s authorities, and for threatening the social and economic status of the country. The suspects were also accused of committing hostile acts against two countries, which can endanger Kuwait’s relations with those countries, and of financing the terrorist organization by collecting donations illegally for it. Earlier, the Criminal Court had sentenced five of the suspects to ten-year imprisonment with hard labor and refrained from penalizing the remaining seven suspects but placed them under surveillance of the State Security Department for two years.
