Court Acquitted Kuwaiti Citizen Who Was Accused For Insulting Police Officer
The Court of Appeals overturned the ruling of the First Instance Court that imposed prison sentence on a citizen for humiliating a police officer, resulting in the citizen’s acquittal. Attorney Abdul-Aziz Al-Subeie, who represented the citizen in court, asserted the charges against his client were malicious as the police officer issued a traffic citation without legal basis. He added the Public Prosecution did not present evidence showing his client is guilty. Al-Subeie stressed all the pieces of evidence presented in court were vague and suspicious, so he demanded for acquittal of his client.
