The Administrative Court Ordered Reinstatement Of A Public Prosecutor
Category: Crime News

The Administrative Court has ordered reinstatement of a Public Prosecutor, nullifying the Ministry of Interior’s decision to refer the official for compulsory retirement. According to Attorney Mesfir Al-Ajmi — the plaintiff’s lawyer, his client was appointed at the General Investigations Department in 1995 and rose through ranks to become a Public Prosecutor. His job performance rating has always been ‘excellent’ throughout his years of service because of his exemplary work, dedication and meticulous attitude. Therefore, he was surprised by the decision to refer him for retirement in February 2016. He said the ministry was wrong as it acted contrary to the law. The lawyer pointed out that the officer was forced to retire before attaining the legal retirement age, an act best described as failure to spot the difference between damages and benefits. He noted this happened at a time the same ministry extended the retirement age for Kuwaiti and Bedoun military officers to 65 years old to benefit from their experience and ensure they are socially stable.
