The Criminal Court sentenced a Kuwaiti man to 10 years in jail with hard labor and immediate execution for allegedly killing his Asian housemaid at South Surra. The prosecution officer disclosed that the man and his wife at various instances maltreated, physically abused and wounded the maid with an excuse that she was lazy, which led to her ultimate death. The couple later dumped her remains in a desert region, while the husband registered absconding case against her. The couple stood trial for maltreating the woman to death.
The Court of Appeals presided by Justice Anwar Al- Enezi upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance and sentenced Kuwaiti woman to 42 months imprisonment with hard labor, and ordered her to pay KD 5,001 fine as temporary compensation to her divorced husband. Case papers indicate the accused, Abeer Al-Fawwaz, has been charged with mercilessly beating her children immediately after the divorce. Once the father discovered the incident he took them to Forensics and a medical report showed the children were beaten — bruised, injured and burnt.
