The criminal responsibility of a minister is provided for in Article 132 of the Kuwaiti constitution, by giving the parliament the power to issue a law for the trial of ministers. This law will define the potential ministerial offences; the procedures to be followed as well as the court authorised to undertake the trial of ministers. The aim of this study is to investigate the constitutionality and applicability of the law of trial of ministers in Kuwait, and the extent to which this law has been influenced by the laws of criminal trial ofministers in other jurisdictions in particular French and Egyptian Law.To reach that end this study will first discuss the growth and development of criminal responsibility in both the Kuwaiti law and the other similar jurisdictions. The study will then discuss the ministerial crime, before investigating the p~ocedures to make a criminal case against a minister. Then the body authorised with the investigation in case a minister commits a crime while on duty will be discussed, besides the formation of the ministerial court and the authority of this court.
