The Court of Cassation chaired by Judge Ahmad Al-Ajeel ruled in favor of the Court of Appeals to execute a Kuwaiti man accused of beating and torturing a child to death in a vehicle, and to imprison the mother of the child for 10 years with hard labor, the Arab Times reported on 20 January 2020.
The case file indicates the crime dates back to early August 2018 when the Operations Room received a communication from the mother claiming that her child was motionless after having a fall, and when security and medical emergency men examined the child, they discovered traits of beating and torture.
The mother during investigation revealed that she was accompanied by a male friend who had beaten the daughter until she succumbed to her injuries. The Public Prosecutor confirmed before court that the Kuwaiti man proposed to the child's mother that her daughter should be killed because of the circumstances of her disability, indicating the child was preventing them from enjoying their life.
