RNA - The Kuwaiti appeal court upheld the five years prison sentence previously given to the secretary general of the Islamic Alliance, Hussain al-Maatooq.
According to the Bahraini news website, Mirat al-Bahrain, the Kuwaiti judicial system has sentenced Sheikh Maatooq for hiding the information of the criminals, a case called Abduli Core (Khalia al-Abduli).
Moreover, the said Kuwaiti court has similarly given the deputy of Sheikh Maatoq, Hashim Fazil, a five years prison sentence, and three other people related to this case were arrested by the order of the court.
Kuwaiti Shiites are wronged occasionally as the heads of this country follow Saudi Arabia that regards itself as the elder brother of other Araba states of the Persian Gulf.
Three years ago, the Interior Ministry of Kuwait also claimed that 12 Kuwaiti Shiitess, charged with spying, had been tried in their absence and then arrested.
