The Kuwaiti Public Prosecution announced that the Kuwaiti man accused of killing a woman in Sabah Al-Salem last week has been charged with premeditated murder of the first degree, which is punishable by death in Kuwait.
Farah Hamza Akbar was kidnapped by the Kuwaiti last Tuesday.
It was alleged that he stabbed her and threw her outside the Al-Adan Hospital in Mubarak Al-Kabeer.
The victim died at a later time of her wounds.
According to reports, the suspect wanted to marry the victim, but her family refused his offer.
The woman's family said that she had filed several cases in several police stations and with some public prosecutors, but the man was not detained. The woman's sister - who is a lawyer - said she repeatedly pleaded with the prosecutor that the man's release might endanger her sister's life, but he was released on bail.
She also said that the police stations did not take their complaints seriously.
Dozens of women gathered last Thursday in front of the National Assembly in Al-Irada Square to demand more protection for women and to demand that the police take their cases more seriously.
