Expatriate sentenced to four years in prison with KD5,000 fine and deportation

August 23, 20170 Comments

The Court of Cassation nullified the verdict of Misdemeanor Court of Appeals that sentenced an expatriate to four years in prison with KD5,000 fine and deportation after serving the term for practicing pharmacy and dispensing medicines without license.

The Public Prosecution Department charged the suspect for illegitimate practice as a pharmacist and engaging in the sale of medicines without license, because he isn’t register with the Ministry of Health. He was also accused of selling pharmaceutical products and other health related products deemed unfit for human consumption and hazardous to health.

He purportedly had knowledge of the implication of adulteration and non validity and yet created a store for safe keeping of those items without official authorization. Lawyer Talal Al-Enezi in defense of the suspect argued the allegations against his client were fraught with ambiguities and considered a setup.

He explained the circumstances leading to his client’s arrest and urged the court to declare him innocent of all allegations and the court granted his plea.
