MP slander case adjourned

KUWAIT: The criminal court yesterday postponed a hearing in the case filed against MP Abdul Hameed Dashti for slandering Bahrain and ‘endangering Kuwait’s foreign relations’ until September 14. Dashti has denied the charges and stressed that his opinion was expressed out of the freedom of expression and defending human rights. Separately, the administrative court of appeal yesterday rejected a case demanding the dissolution of the Social Reform Society (SRS), said the society’s lawyer Bader Al-Zeir.

Security cams law Commenting on the security cams law currently discussed by the national assembly, MP Dr Yousif Al-Zalzelah said that people’s privacy could not be undermined in anyway and that, along with a number of his colleagues, parliament would reject the bill unless amended in way that protects people’s rights and privacy.

Plastic fingerprints The Ministry of Electricity and Water recently referred a number of employees to prosecution for using fake plastic fingerprints punching in and out of their work places. The ministry stressed that those employees had their fake fingerprints used to show that they had been showing up to work while they were actually abroad.

Women in judiciary Responding to the recent statements made by MP Dr Abdul Rahman Al-Jeeran that deemed women unfit for politics and the judiciary, National Assembly Advisor and former Municipal Council member Dr Jenan Boushehri reminded MP Jeeran how Kahdija was Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) prime advisor in Makkah and that Allah Almighty did not admonish him for that. She added that the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) also took advice from his wife Umm Salamah on what to do regarding the Treaty of Hudaibiyah and Allah never admonished him for it. She also questioned what he meant by referring to the West. “Is he referring to Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel, Hillary Clinton or Golda Meir - the woman who we never defeated in any battle?” she exclaimed, adding that many women are now very successful judges in the West.
