KUWAIT CITY, Nov 23, (Agencies): The Criminal Court has postponed the verdict on a case involving adultery, abortion, and the burial of a fetus, which implicates three expatriates. The accused face various charges, including the first defendant who allegedly sold abortion pills to a fellow expatriate upon request to terminate the fetus of the latter’s wife.
Upon obtaining the abortion pills, the second defendant, the husband, presented them to his wife (the third defendant) to induce a miscarriage, even though she was seven months pregnant. Following the miscarriage, the couple buried the fetus in the building’s yard in the Farwaniya area and created a makeshift grave.
The informant, a friend of the expatriate wife, discovered the incident and reported it to the police. Subsequently, undercover detectives conducted secret investigations, revealing that the expatriate wife was in a common-law marriage with the second accused. It was determined that she had miscarried and, upon notification of the Public Prosecution, the grave was excavated.
DNA testing established that the first accused was the biological father of the fetus, indicating that the expatriate wife had deceived her husband. Confronted with the allegations, the wife confessed to having miscarried the fetus with her husband’s assistance, unaware that the child was not her husband’s but rather the result of an affair with the first accused.
The husband, upon confrontation, admitted his involvement but was shocked to learn the true paternity of the fetus. He revealed that his wife had deceived him into believing that the child was his, maintaining a facade of intense love and loyalty. The accused admitted to having a six-year marriage with the second accused but succumbed to the manipulation of his friend, resulting in an affair and pregnancy.
The Criminal Court has decided to reserve the case for further deliberation until next week, at which time the verdict will be pronounced.
