The Court of Appeals overturned the ruling of the First Instance Court that sentenced two citizens to five years in jail for assaulting three expatriates, resulting in their acquittal.

The Public Prosecution charged the two citizens with assaulting three expatriates. Case files indicate one of the citizens used a knife and the other used a wooden board in attacking the three expatriates, causing injuries described in a medical report which showed that one of the victims suffered bleeding in his brain and different injuries for the two others.

Attorney Jarrah Al-Anazi defended the two citizens pointing out that there was no evidence to connect his clients and the crime, asserting the complaint is obviously malicious. He argued it is illogical that one person beats three others and the other used a knife considering the victims sustained bruises. 
Al-Anazi added the injuries stated in the medical report of the plaintiffs cannot be caused by the tool mentioned in the investigation (knife). He said his other client is the real victim according to the medical report attached to the case file.

Benefits restored: The Court of Appeals nullified the decision of the Public Authority for Handicapped Affairs, affirming the right of a citizen to certain financial benefits retroactively and the court declared his movement disability as intermediate and permanent rather than minor and permanent. Attorney Eid Al-Enezi, who filed the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiff, affirmed that his client has been suffering from intermediate and permanent disability since 2008, so he was surprised when the authority changed the nature of disability to minor and permanent. He explained his client has had atrophy on the right eye retina since birth and could not see. His case was presented to a medical committee for diagnosis and the committee later issued a report indicating that the disability is intermediate and permanent. He added his client was qualified for certain disability benefits and a card was issued to him for that purpose.

Insulting tweets: The Court of Appeals overturned the verdict of a lower court which fined a citizen KD150 and acquitted him of tweeting statements deemed offensive to a female teacher in the Ministry of Education. Lawyer for the citizen, Attorney Abdullah Matar, argued in court that the charges against his client were devoid of criminal intent. He said the purported tweets of his client do not contain words which are considered as insults.
