Department examined 15,000 fingerprints to resolve unsolved cases

Azmi’s family receives waiver after transferring blood money

KUWAIT: The Criminal Evidence Department examined the fingerprints of around 15,000 suspects referred to it by various security sectors and the public prosecution in 2018 with the aim of resolving unsolved cases and compare them to unidentified fingerprints found at various crime scenes, well-informed sources said. The sources added that the criminal evidence department database now includes fingerprints of around 9 million citizens and expats.

KUWAIT: A copy of the waiver issued to release Khaled Nega Al-Azmi from prison after the blood money was received.

Waiver received
Members of Khaled Nega Al-Azmi’s family received a waiver dropping the case against him after blood money was transferred to the heirs of Hedaya Al-Sultan. The Awazem tribe had recently gathered the KD 10 million ‘blood money’ that the victim’s family agreed to receive in exchange of releasing Azmi 19 years after his imprisonment.

Risk management
Finance Minister Dr Nayef Al-Hajraf issued a ministerial resolution on forming a committee to audit and assess risks at the Public Institution For Social Security. The committee will be headed by Mohammed Al-Qattan and include Brig Adel Al-Jasmi, Colonel Abdul Mohsen Al-Akshan, Bader Al-Hamad, Abdul Aziz Shuaib and Abdullah Al-Hajri. The committee will be entrusted with reviewing the authority’s financial decisions, supervising outside auditors and assessing their performance, reviewing the risk management strategy, appointing and dismissing auditors and setting disciplinary measures for employees.

Health insurance
Well-informed medical sources strongly denied suspending the health insurance contract for students dispatched on scholarships to the UK. The sources noted that pending auditors’ approval of the health insurance contract’s renewal and in order to provide students with the proper healthcare, the Kuwait health office in London has advised students seeking healthcare to consult their family doctor or the NHS hospitals free of charge.

Assailants at large
Three unidentified assailants stabbed a Vietnamese man in Hawally and left him bleeding before passersby called the police. The victim, who was stabbed in the upper part of his chest, was rushed to the ICU, where he told police that he didn’t recognize his assailants.
