Kuwait's public prosecutor Wednesday ordered opposition leader Mussallam al-Barrak to be held in custody after he was questioned for allegedly insulting the judiciary, his lawyer said.Dozens of activists and former opposition MPs gathered outside the police headquarters where Barrak was held as opposition groups called for a public rally in Kuwait City later Wednesday.Before being questioned, Barrak said the public prosecutor was not impartial because he is on the judicial council which sued him.He also said the public prosecutor should have initiated the case by interrogating the former officials who allegedly plotted the coup and stole the money.
