Kuwait- Man Acquitted Of Carrying Narcotics

(MENAFN- Arab Times) The Court of Appeals presided over by Judge Adnan Al-Jasser acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen of the charges of possessing drugs and driving under narcotic influence due to the nullification of the procedures followed in arresting him. According to the case files, the Public Prosecution accused the defendant of possessing narcotic pills based on the report of the arresting officer in which he specified that he stopped the suspect's vehicle for issuing a traffic citation. However, when he noticed the disoriented state of the suspect, he checked to find the narcotic pills and arrested the suspect. Defense Attorney Ahmad Naji requested the court to acquit his client because his case was not specified in the law, which includes the cases that require inspection and arrest. He also stressed that the officer did not obtain a warrant from the Public Prosecution for inspecting and arresting his client.
