KUWAIT CITY (APP) – Kuwait’s supreme court on Monday upheld a four-year jail term against an online activist for insulting judges on Twitter.

The court, whose rulings are final, convicted Ahmad Fadhel for writing comments on Twitter deemed offensive to a number of judges, the court verdict said.

Three top judges sued the activist, claiming they were subjected to defamation. A lower court issued the same sentence against Fadhel in October 2014. The ruling was upheld by the appeals court in February last year.
