The Court of Appeal nullified the ruling of the Court of First Instance, which sentenced two expatriate men to seven years in prison with hard labor. The appellate court refrained from pronouncing penalty in the alleged forgery of official documents to facilitate the collection of money belonging to another person.

In an appeal filed by Lawyer Hassan Al-Ajmi on behalf of his clients, the Public Prosecution Department charged them for forging official documents by signing a rent agreement on behalf of a Kuwaiti woman and producing receipts for the contract.

The purported agreement was meant to deceive tenants who rented the property. The duo was accused of a deliberate act and charged for conspiring with other people to commit a crime, as those people provided them the required information in forging the documents.

Lawyer Al-Ajmi, representing the defendants argued that his clients were innocent, because they acted without any criminal intention. He cited his clients were the ones who reported the case, indicating they wouldn’t have taken the step if they were accomplices in the crime.
