MP Abdul-Hameed Dashti Case On Hold
Category: Crime News

The Court of Appeals presided over by Justice Nasser Salem Al Heid has stopped looking into the State Security case involving former MP Abdul-Hameed Dashti who was sentenced to 11 years and six months in absentia. The decision follows a petition the Public Prosecution filed to stop looking into the case after expiry of the defendant’s appeal period. The Public Prosecution accused the former MP of statements deemed highly offensive to fellow Gulf States (Saudi Arabia and Bahrain), and endangering Kuwait’s diplomatic ties with the two countries by calling on people to join the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah militia, and also publishing false news about Kuwait. The former MP was sentenced in absentia to a total jail term of 14 years and six months with hard labor, and fine of KD 2,000 for offending the Public Prosecutor.
