From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

KUWAIT: Prominent opposition leader Musallam al-Barrack was released from jail yesterday following daily protests calling for him to be set free.

His lawyer said that Mr Barrack will face trial in September on charges of insulting the judiciary and accusing top judges of bribery. The former opposition MP was arrested last Wednesday after revealing documents alleging huge sums of illicit financial transfers were made to senior officials.

Kuwaiti security forces arrested and beat up protesters who were demanding political reform and the release of political prisoners: here.
