Court Acquitted A Citizen And His Female Companion Of Adultery
The Court of Cassation overturned the verdict of the Court of Appeals which acquitted a citizen and his female companion of adultery. The higher court ordered for imprisonment of the accused for two years with hard labor. The wife of the citizen filed the case based on the outcome of a secret investigation which showed the two were committing adultery in the apartment of the citizen. The female companion used to appear in the late morning hours to commit the crime. The investigators obtained a search warrant and raided the apartment leading to the arrest of the duo. Attorney Zayd Al- Khabbaz, who represented the plaintiff in court, submitted documents which proved that the accused committed adultery with his female friend in accordance with the Penal Code, given that they were caught in a circumstance that does not leave any aspect of doubt on the crime they committed.
