Hunt on for arsonists in judge’s home blaze

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 27: Less than a week after setting fire to the house of Cassation Court Counselor Sultan Burasli, a security source told Al-Qabas that the Ministry of Interior has obtained information that “is likely to lead to the two masked persons who set fire and escaped on a motorcycle.” The source explained the investigations (which are ongoing) over the past few days have helped the security authorities to collect important clues and people suspected of involvement in the crime were summoned for interrogation. The source pointed out many people have been interrogated, in addition to listening to the statements of a number of people (neighbors of the Counselor) especially the eyewitness who happened to be passing by when the two masked people poured gasoline and set fire around the house, which also destroyed a car.

According to the source, one eyewitness has provided important information about the physical characteristics of the two people, which matches what has been recorded by the surveillance cameras. The sources indicated some of the traces removed from the crime scene have been handed over to the forensic department for examination, and the itinerary of these masked people was tracked by surveillance cameras after they fled from the vicinity of the Counselor’s house. The sources stressed that the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled, is personally supervising the investigations and is minutely following up the case on an ongoing basis, and has given strict directives to make the utmost efforts to arrest the suspects as quickly as possible.
