The Cassation Court Monday rejected an appeal submitted by 13 individuals against the verdict of the Court of Appeals which sentenced them to two-year imprisonment for using words deemed offensive to the Amiri entity by quoting from or spreading the infamous speech titled “Enough of Frivolity” by the former MP Musallam Al-Barrak. The court ordered a three-year suspension of the ruling and a financial guarantee of KD 3,000 each along with a pledge to maintain good conduct. The defendants are among the 21 individuals who are accused of spreading or quoting from the infamous speech, which, according to the judiciary, contains words that are deemed offensive to the entity of His Highness the Amir of Kuwait. The prosecution urged the court to impose the toughest punishment on the defendants, which is five years in prison with hard labor. Al-Barrak had served a jail term of two years with hard labor for giving the controversial speech at Erada Square, but all other defendants are denying the charges leveled against them. In the same context, the Civil Court has ordered Ministry of Justice to pay compensation worth KD 41,000 to MP Faraj Al-Arbeed for the damages caused by the ministry through its mistake in counting the votes in the last general elections, and its failure to pronounce Al-Ajmi as the winner. The verdict came in accordance with the verdict issued by the Constitutional Court in this regard in May 2017.
