The Criminal Court acquitted a citizen of possessing hashish. Case files indicate a friend of the accused borrowed his car and the friend passed by a security checkpoint but he did not stop. Securitymen then forced him to stop, resulting in the discovery of an undisclosed quantity of hashish. He was referred to the concerned security unit where he denied having any link with the hashish and the car. The officers summoned the owner of the car for questioning, during which he denied the accusation saying he handed over his car to the friend’s uncle. The Public Prosecution charged the owner of the car with possessing drugs. Attorney Zaid Al-Khabbaz, who represented the accused in court, demanded for acquittal of his client as he was not caught red-handed. He also pointed out that the investigation results are not enough to prove his client is guilty, adding the testimonies of the two security officers were false. He said his client has no criminal record and he has never been accused of possessing drugs.
