The Court of Cassation presided by Justice Saleh Al-Muraished overruled the decision of Appeal Court that sentenced two citizens to seven years in prison with hard labor.

The court instead acquitted them of all charges leveled against them, which include the possession of narcotics for sale and consumption purpose, and damaging police car.

The case file indicates that officers were issued search and arrest warrant against the first defendant who went on to name his accomplice. The police went on to arrest the other defendant when he attempted to flee from them and crashed into a police car in a bid to immobilize the car and escape.

Representing the first defendant, Attorney En’aam Haydar argued that evidence linking her client to the allegation of consuming narcotics was not enough to convict him, given that the ‘intention to sell narcotics’ accusation was the opinion of the arresting officer, while the prosecution failed to provide substantial evidence in that concern.

Meanwhile, two young men were arrested in Jahra area under suspicions of drug use, reports Al-Seyassah daily. According to security sources, Jahra securitymen were at a security checkpoint on a street in Jahra area at night when they suspected the two young men who arrived at the checkpoint. Based on suspicions after seeing their disoriented state, they checked the two men to find tools intended for drug use. They were arrested and referred with the confiscated tools to the concerned authorities for investigations and necessary legal action.
