Kuwait arrested a fugitive convict involved in the Abdali terror group case on Saturday, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

According to the Interior Ministry, security forces apprehended Abdul Mohsen Jamal Husain Al Shatti on Saturday evening.

Shatti has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. His apprehension brings the number of those arrested to 14.

Kuwait had charged 25 Kuwaitis and 1 Iranian after weapons and explosives were seized in 2015. Prosecution representatives said they were planning to carry out hostile activities.

One was sentenced to death while the others were sentenced to time in prison. In June, the country’s top-court cancelled the execution verdict in the case and amended other verdicts.

Sentences in absentia were issued against at least 14 others, including the Iranian.
