KUWAIT: The supreme court upheld yesterday a death sentence against a woman for murdering her Filipina maid after torturing her, and confirmed a 10-year sentence on her disabled husband. The Kuwaiti woman was convicted of premeditated murder based on evidence that she had regularly tortured her maid before driving over her in a remote desert area. The husband was handed the jail term for “assisting her”, according to a copy of the ruling. The couple were both sentenced to death by the lower court in February last year. Three months later, the appeals court upheld the death penalty against the woman but commuted the sentence against her husband to 10 years in jail.
According to the ruling, the woman beat her maid for several days until her health deteriorated. The couple then took the maid “unconscious” to a remote area in the desert where they threw her from the back seat of the car and then drove over her until she died. More than 100,000 Filipinos, many of them women working as maids, live in Kuwait, where some 600,000 domestic helpers, mostly Asians, are employed.
KUWAIT: The chairman of state-owned Kuwait Airways has been suspended in a dispute over his plans to buy five used aircraft from India’s Jet Airways, which the company has since abandoned. Al-Qabas quoted Communications Minister Esa Al-Kandari as saying he had suspended Sami Al-Nisf after he announced plans to buy the used aircraft despite a government request to stop the deal. It said Nisf’s deputy, Jassar Al-Jassar, has been appointed as acting chairman. Nisf confirmed yesterday that he had been suspended. “I have been informed of my suspension from work. I have not gone to my office and I am studying legal procedures,” Nisf told Reuters.
The plan to buy the used Airbus A330 planes was announced on Sunday, with the company adding that it would not affect a previous deal to buy new Airbus jets. Nisf had said that Airbus, owned by aerospace and defence group EADS, would act as a mediator in the deal with Jet Airways, even though the five-year-old planes are owned by the Indian carrier.
KUWAIT: Gulf states plan to study a project which will identify homosexuals and transgender individuals through a ‘clinical test’ which will be added to the list of medical tests one has to undergo to obtain a visa. If individuals are revealed to be homosexual or transgender, they will be denied entry into the country, a local daily reported yesterday, quoting a senior official in Kuwait’s Ministry of Health.
“Homosexuals and ‘third-sex’ individuals can be detected through clinical tests during the routine medical examination for visa”, Public Health Department Director Dr Yousuf Mendakar said. ‘Third-sex’ is a common term used in Gulf states to refer to transsexuals or people with gender identity disorder. The senior official added that an individual who is identified as homosexual will have ‘unfit’ stamped on his medical report; a term often used for people who fail medical tests which will automatically disqualify their visa application.

KUWAIT: In downtown Kuwait City and overlooking the blue shores of the Arabian Gulf is the National Assembly building, which built in 1985, can still be regarded today a clear model of architectural splendor. Designed by renowned Danish architect Jorn Utzon 10 years before its completion, the architect who brought us the Sydney Opera House made the Kuwaiti parliament building to resemble an old hospitable Arabian kiosk.
Overlooking the country’s trendy Arabian Gulf Street, the crystal white building sways upwards from back to front, as the ceiling gives way to the appearance of fabric hitched on to 12 pillars that hold up the building at the front. The main entrance is located at the front of the building – regarded the southern exit – just behind the pillars and under the highest point of the dominating curve.
