Kingpin in custody as police bust huge ‘work visa’ racket I’m just middle-man, says Bangladeshi

 KUWAIT CITY, Jan 21: Detectives from the General Immigration Department have arrested two men — a Kuwaiti and a Bangladeshi — for what the authorities said infiltrating into the automation system with help from some unidentified employees of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor and processing 350 work permits from the Capital Governorate Labor Department, reports Al-Jaridah daily.

The daily added the two suspects with the help of forged documents of a fictitious company sold 150 work permits for laborers at KD 1,000 each.

According to reliable sources the detectives learned that the Bangladeshi was selling work permits for KD 1,000 and began collecting information about the sponsor.

Investigations revealed the citizen owns a fake general trading and contracting company and with the help from unknown people (believed to be employees of the labor sector) at the ministry infiltrated into the automation system and registered the company and estimated the needs of the company at 35 laborers.
The source said the detectives then arrested the Bangladeshi man from a coffee shop — the coffee shop which he used as a hideout to carry out his activities — and took him to the immigration office for investigation.

During interrogation he said he was just middle man and worked on commission. He also admitted to having contacts with an unidentified person to recruit laborers.

The source pointed out, the detectives have arrested the citizen but until now he refuses to divulge the names of people who helped him to infiltrate into the automated system.
 The investigations are underway to identify all suspects.
