Court Acquitted A Kuwaiti Citizen Who Was Accused Of Swindling KD 29000 From A Kuwaiti Woman
The Juvenile Court acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen who was accused of swindling KD 29,000 from a Kuwaiti woman. According to the victim’s testimony, she met the suspect in 2012 when he introduced himself as a trader of spare parts for vehicles and claimed that he is a member of a family specialized in this profession.
They kept in touch and eventually he convinced her to invest in the business. She gave KD 29,000 but she later discovered in 2013 that he is not a part of the family that he claimed. When the citizen was interrogated, he denied the claims of the victim, revealing that he had received KD 29,000 from her but he returned KD 31,500. He affirmed that the project is real but the allegation against him was raised because she wanted to marry him.
The defense counsel Lawyer Bashar Al-Nassar said the plaintiff’s claim that his client stopped calling her from 2012 to 2013 is false, especially since she had filed the lawsuit in 2014. Lawyer Al-Nassar insisted that the accusations against his client are malicious and fake as well as lack evidences. He stressed that his client said the truth and admitted to receiving KD 29,000, indicating that he would have denied receiving any money at all from her had he been a swindler in real. Lawyer Al-Nassar affirmed that the project is real but swindling generally occurs for fake projects.
