The Criminal Court sentenced a man to two-year imprisonment with hard labor and ordered him to pay KD 300 for suspending the verdict temporarily after he was convicted of assaulting his wife. In his wife’s defense was Lawyer Mohammad Al-Qattan who managed to prove to the court that the defendant physically assaulted his client and caused painful injuries on her body, as was described in the medical report. Testifying in favor of the wife was the house maid, who told the court that she heard the wife screaming, and then the husband entered her (maid) room and searched her before storming outside the house. The maid said she knew through the wife that the husband assaulted her. Also testifying in favor of the wife were two passersby who explained that they heard noises as they were passing in front of the house. They then saw a woman run out of the house and covering her face with a bed sheet. She asked them to help her to reach her relative’s house.
