Kuwait's top court on Monday ordered leading opposition leader Musallam al-Barrack to be released on bail ahead of a final decision on charges he insulted the country's ruler, the activist's lawyer said.
The case against al-Barrack stems from a speech he gave during a rally in 2012. He called on Kuwait's ruling emir, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah, not to "drag the country into a dark abyss," and said Kuwait risked becoming an autocratic state.
