KUWAIT CITY • Former Kuwaiti oil and finance minister and ruling family member Sheikh Ali Al Khalifa Al Sabah has been interrogated over a multi-million-dollar graft case, a newspaper reported yesterday.

Al Watan said Sheikh Ali, who was a minister in the 1980s and early 1990s, was questioned on Saturday for the second time by a special three-judge tribunal over his suspected role in the embezzlement.

 

The next session is to take place on Monday, said the daily, which is owned by Sheikh Ali.

 

The tribunal aims to establish if the accusations against Sheikh Ali, filed by the government in 2001, are serious enough to press charges before a special court.
