Last week I was helping out a friend with a university project related to sexual crimes under Kuwait’s Penal Law and I thought it would be something interesting to share on the blog as well because there’s a lot of confusion on the subject. Whether you or I agree or do not agree with the law, please stay safe and legal readers.
Note: Where I have written a person is guilty and age does not matter, that means the age does not matter for the crime to occur. That does not mean the person gets punished if underaged, instead juvenile laws are followed.
There is no article stating any punishment for acts between two females. There are also other crimes that I have not mentioned above like incest since I wanted to highlight the most common crimes only. But, you can find the full version of the law in Arabic [Here]
