(MENAFN - Arab Times) The Criminal Court chaired by Judge Ahmad Al-Qusaimi sentenced the people who were standing trial for storming Scope TV Channel and vandalizing property at the premises to three months in jail and each of them ordered to pay KD 500 fine for suspension of execution.

The Public Prosecution charged some members of the Al-Azemi tribe for vandalism and the destruction of property inside the Scope TV. They were also accused of illegitimate gathering and defying the orders of security operatives in March 2012.

According to case files, the defendants stormed the channel at around 3:00am in reaction to a statement made by a former lawmaker during a live interview conducted by the channel. The tribesmen regarded the statement as insulting to their leader, which in return meant ridiculing the entire tribe.

The defendants include director of the company responsible for maintenance works at the plant who is alleged to have neglected his duty, and caused damage to the pump. The second and third defendants are charged for causing damage to a public utility.
