The Criminal Court sentenced three Kuwaiti citizens to three-year imprisonment with hard labor after convicting them of assaulting an Iranian expatriate by beating him and causing injuries, which were described in the medical forensic report.
According to the case file, the victim had attempted to stop the three suspects from teasing his wife on the street, prompting one of the suspects to assault him and flee the scene. However, the suspect returned shortly with the other two and further assaulted him.
The incident was captured by a CCTV camera. Representing the victim was Lawyer Zayd Al-Khabbaz who said the trio assaulted his client with the intention of humiliating him and disregarding his dignity in front of his wife, causing emotional and physical pain, which is punishable in the eyes of the law.
