Court Acquitted An Inmate Of The Central Jail From Consuming Drugs
The Criminal Court acquitted an inmate of the Central Jail from consuming drugs inside his prison cell. According to the testimony given by the arresting officer, he was carrying out routine inspection of the cells when he saw the suspect showing signs of fear while attempting to hide some items, which were later recognized to be tools used for consuming drugs. The defense counsel Lawyer Fahad Al-Saeed insisted that the charges were leveled against his client maliciously due to an existing dispute between his client and the arresting officer, stressing the illegal procedures taken by the officers without first obtaining necessary documentation. He also disqualified the result of the blood sample taken from his client which contained drugs, insisting that his client could have been sniffed the narcotic substance from another inmate.
