Yesterday, the Kuwaiti Attorney General, Dirar Al-Asousi, decided to upgrade 8 female prosecutors to the position of “female judges” within a group of male prosecutors, which is the first event of its kind after opening the door for their admission to the Public Prosecution.

Al-Asousi said:

He added: They will enter a one and a half month course at the Kuwait Institute for Legal and Judicial Studies, in order to gain more experience in various branches of law and its types.
He continued, "This is our plan, which will be annually to qualify public prosecutors and agents, in order to complete the plan for judging the judiciary," explaining that they have proven their worth, efficiency and giving.
Judges covered by the decision are: Lulwa Al-Ghanem, Fatima Abdel-Moneim, Fatima Al-Kandari, Fatima Al-Farhan, Bashair Al-Rakdan, Rawa'a Al-Tabtabae, Sanabel Al-Houti, Bashayer Abdul-Jalil.
