KUWAIT CITY, Dec 4: The Court of Cassation upheld the verdict, sentenced three activists of the Bedoun cause to imprisonment for periods ranging between one and two years with a suspended sentence, and imposed a fine of KD 500 on the remaining defendants. They were accused of gathering in Taima and broadcasting false news.
The Court of Appeals overturned the verdict issued by the Criminal Court, which acquitted three activists of the Bedoun cause, and ruled that they be imprisoned for one and two years, and suspended for three years. Several defendants have imposed fines of KD 100 and KD 500. The Public Prosecution had referred the defendants to trial after charging each of them with gathering without a permit and broadcasting false news about the country’s internal situation.
