Criminal Section at the Court of First Instance ordered the detention of a motorist who hit and severely injured a Kuwaiti man while he was trying to cross a road. The court suspended execution of another three years jail term with hard labor against the defendant and fined him KD 100. The Public Prosecution Department charged the motorist for negligence and carelessness that made him hit the plaintiff unintentionally, noting the defendant left the scene without informing the closest police point or requesting an ambulance for the victim who sustained injuries as a result of the incident. Lawyer Mohammad Khalil Al-Qattan said the defendant had carelessly hurt the plaintiff and the court linked error with injury, because there is a causative relationship between both elements. He stated the action is punishable under Article 164 of the penal code.
