The Amir pardons those convicted of offending Him

Arab Times:

His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah pardoned all people who were accused of offending the Amir, as he expressed optimism that the next parliament would witness development and work on diversification of income. “I am pleased on the occasion of the last 10 days of Ramadan to grant an Amiri amnesty on all those convicted of offending the Amir to be effective immediately,” said Sheikh Sabah in his speech to the nation. His Highness the Amir also said that Kuwait in the 14th legislative term of the National Assembly would witness promising approach toward “horizons of progress of development and serious action for income diversification.”(link)

I'm sure that is a relief for the Kuwaiti female who was supposed to serve jail time for bad mouthing the Amir.
