November 28, 2017, 7:54 am

A Kuwaiti court on Monday handed down jail sentences of one to five years to a number of defendants accused of storming parliament. Some 28 defendants have been sentenced to up to five years behind bars with hard labor for "the use of force and inciting unrest."

Meanwhile, 23 others were given jail sentences of three years and six months with hard labor for their "violent and criminal actions", while 49 defendants face two-year jail terms with labor for "inciting policemen to revolt."

The court slapped two-year jail terms on five others accused of "mobbing and assaulting police officers," while another 10 defendants were given one-year jail terms.

The court also acquitted two defendants while indictment proceedings against another suspect were terminated due to his death.
