- A Russian businesswoman and mother of a U.S. citizen has been wrongly imprisoned in Kuwait for over a year and needs to be let out on bail at a hearing Sunday, her advocacy team said.
- Marsha Lazareva, a former U.S. green card holder, was sentenced for misappropriating funds but has since had her conviction overturned.
- In what Lazareva’s advocates describe as an ironic twist, human rights activists brought her story before a UN body days before Kuwait assumed the month-long presidency of the UN Security Council in June.
