(MENAFN - Arab Times) The Criminal Court acquitted a Kuwaiti juvenile of the kidnap and rape of a Kuwaiti girl, says Al-Seyassah.
According to the case file, the plaintiff's mother said her 15-year-old daughter walked to school to write her exam and the school bus was to bring her back home at 2:00 pm. However, the mother had second thoughts about the daughter walking to school alone, so she went there around 1:00 pm to make sure the girl was fine, but she could not find her at the school.
Approximately 3:30 pm, the school principal called to notify the woman that her daughter had returned to the school, so she rushed to the place to inquire why she wasn't at the school. It was then the girl said she has a relationship with one youth who came to the school and drove her to a location after she had finished the exam at 12:30 pm. She also said the youth and his friend raped her in turns and brought her back to the school after that.
Meanwhile, Attorney Zayed Al-Khabbaz argued the court could not acknowledge the lawsuit because the victim's guardian has not submitted a complaint in this regard.
