Court acquits Kuwaiti of assaulting nephew

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 24: The Misdemeanor Court acquitted a Kuwaiti citizen who was accused of beating his sister’s son in front of the family at their grandfather’s house. The defense counsel of the plaintiff Lawyer Yousef Al- Mutawa from the office of Lawyer Abdul Mohsen Al-Qattan stressed the lack of evidence to support the accusations. He said the charges were not proven, and no crime was found. Lawyer Al-Mutawa explained that the assumption of the innocence of the accused represents an established principle related to the criminal charge in terms of its proof and not the type of punishment prescribed for it, and it applies to the criminal case in all its stages and throughout its procedures.
The Constitution stipulates that the presumption of innocence cannot be overturned without conclusive evidence concluded by the court based on its belief. It is necessary for this evidence to be presented to the court and for it alone to have its say in it, and for no other party to impose on it a specific concept of a particular piece of evidence, and for this matter to always be based on the facts that it concluded and obtained from its papers, and not restricted by the point of view of the prosecution. Lawyer Al-Mutawa concluded that there is no way to refute the principle of innocence other than evidence for which the persuasive power reaches the level of certainty that leaves no reasonable room for suspicion of the absence of the accusation, provided that its evidence has established its truth.
