The Battle for the Kuwaiti Emiracy: Chapter Five
The court proceedings in the Kuwaiti Sheikhs affair begin, amidst the most unusual of circumstances.
On 30 August 2021, a trial began in Geneva the purpose of which was to be decide which branch of Kuwait's Al-Sabah family would inherit the country's throne. Should it be Sheikh Nasser Al-Mohammed Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Sabah, the former Kuwaiti Prime Minister; or Sheikh Ahmed Al-Fahed Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah? Does it all sound very confusing? If so, then that is because it is extremely confusing.
Below you will find incomplete minutes of the hearings in that trial, which began on Monday 30 August 2021 and concluded on Tuesday 7 August 2021.
