(MENAFN - Arab Times) The Misdemeanor Court of Appeals upheld the verdict of the lower court, which acquitted a dentist from the charges of committing immoral activities with a nurse working with him and quarreling with the latter's husband. However, the court suspended enforcing the penalty of fining the nurse's husband KD 50 for three years, provided he signs a pledge of good conduct and behavior.
According to the case files, the dentist deliberately touched the nurse's wrist every time she handed him any tool during their work in a school clinic. However, she confronted him when he touched her body in a sexually provocative manner and the dentist punished her out of fury. When her husband came to the clinic to pick her after work, she informed him of the incident and the punishment. He immediately rushed into the clinic and attacked the doctor.
The dentist's attorney Lawyer Norah Al-Waheeb raised doubts against the testimonies of the couple, stressing that the husband attacked the dentist first.
She informed the court that the accusations of the dentist's immoral activities are malicious, as the nurse was retaliating against the dentist for asking her to leave due to her negligence at work.
