KUWAIT CITY, Dec 18: Investigations into the sophisticated aerial equipment which recently crashed into the oil tower belonging to the Kuwait Oil Company show that a Kuwaiti man is an accomplice in the alleged underground activities, reports Al-Shahed daily.

The prime suspect who is in police custody is believed to be a member of the Lebanese Hezbollah, say sources close to the investigation.

This is in addition to pictures of other edifices, the Kuwait International Airport and military installation in the Arifjan Camp.

The sources say the suspect has admitted to assembling the equipment in Kuwait and installing inside it the modern sophisticated filming device smuggled into the country from abroad.

The sources added the investigations are continuing to find out the motives of the people involved in the illegal activities. The sources added the security authorities have formed a team to monitor aerial devices, particularly since some of them are being flown in the vicinity of restricted areas and vital installations.

In a similar development, an Indian expatriate and three German expatriates were arrested recently for taking photographs of some oil installations in Shuaiba Port.

According to security sources, while Ahmadi securitymen were patrolling Shuaiba Port, they noticed four individuals holding a camera and taking photographs of the oil rigs.

When the suspects noticed the patrol vehicle, they tried in vain to hide. Securitymen arrested them and referred to the concerned authorities for necessary legal action against them.

Fake work permits: Police have arrested a Sri Lankan man and are looking for a Kuwaiti — identified only as T.A. — for selling forged work permits for KD 530 each, reports Al-Shahed daily.

He also told the authorities the work permits were for Indians who were hired by an unidentified company and when he approached the Indian Embassy for completion of formalities, the embassy officials discovered the work permits were fake.
Investigations conducted by police led to the arrest of the Sri Lankan who admitted to obtaining the work permits from a Kuwaiti who is still at large.
The Al-Anba daily said the Kuwaiti owns a fake company in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh and about 30 expatriates have paid between KD 700 and KD 1,000 for each work permit.
The daily also said the man has ‘disappeared’ after selling the visas.
