Alqabas, 2 January 2024: The Kuwaiti government has rejected a draft law amending the Criminal Procedures and Trials Law.
The government stated that the periods included in the rehabilitation proposal are not intended to achieve its desired goal. This would undermine the interest of society in enabling criminals whose crime has been verified, pursuant to a final judicial ruling, to evade its effects immediately after the punishment is implemented or after a few months have passed.
It has also rejected a draft law amending Kuwait Law No. 8/2010 on the rights of persons with disabilities.
The government stated that the proposed law contains many observations, which may lead to a negative result that harms the rights of persons with disabilities.
It also risks the government not being able to honour its commitments.
