The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Nasr Salem Al-Heed, with members Judge Sorour Bazghal and Judge Mohammad Sheta, upheld the verdict issued by the Criminal Court which acquitted two individuals who were accused of participating in a crime related to forgery of Kuwaiti citizenship with another individual.
The court also decided to cancel the case filed against the first suspect who was sentenced in absentia to fiveyear imprisonment and against the third suspect who was sentenced in absentia to 15-year imprisonment. It decided to cancel the case because of expiry of penalty period over the first allegation directed against them.
According to the case file, the Public Prosecution had accused the first suspect of forging official documents, such as birth notification, birth certifi- cate, civil ID and passport of the third suspect, and falsely claiming that he is the son of the third suspect. It accused the second and third suspects of cooperating with the first suspect in the crime and helping him by giving him the necessary documents and money needed for the crime.
