Kuwait's Appeals Court sentenced two officers to seven years in prison with hard labor in the case of leaks from the country's State Security Agency.

Iran PressMiddle East: The case dates back to 2018 when leaked videos revealed that State Security officers spied on the social media accounts of citizens and parliamentarians.
