February 16, 20160 Comments

As per Kuwait TimesThe court of cassation yesterday sentenced a Kuwaiti female doctor to 42 months in prison and a KD 5,001 fine for abusing her housemaid and causing the loss of sight in her left eye.

According to the case paper, the doctor had been torturing the maid daily and had also been accused in a similar case filed by another maid in 2007. The victim escaped from the doctor’s house when she hired new housemaids and reported the matter.

Notably, the criminal court had acquitted the doctor, but the victim’s lawyer contested the verdict and took it to the court of appeal, which passed a sentence of 4 years’ imprisonment and KD 5,001 fine, but finally the court of cassation reduced it to 42 months plus the fine.

The victim’s lawyer then filed another case demanding a KD 250,000 compensation for his client.
