Kuwaiti political activist sentenced to 5-year jail Arab expat job-seekers cheated

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 10: The Criminal Court sentenced ‘Kuwaiti’ political activist Abdullah Fairoz to five years imprisonment in a State Security case, reports Al-Seyassah daily. The daily added, the accused was found guilty of insulting HH the Amir through the social networking website Twitter. The daily also said Fairoz is not a Kuwaiti and that he did not get the nationality through naturalization but he claimed to belong to the wellknown Kuwaiti family until the authorities discovered he had forged the documents to get to claim the citizenship. The daily went on to say the State Security filed a case against Fairoz, the Public Prosecution had remanded him to 10 days police custody and he was detained at the Central Prison. The daily says Fairoz is Egyptian and that he will be deported after serving the sentence.

Job-seekers cheated: Scores of young Egyptian job-seekers were reportedly cheated by an unidentified influential personality by issuing them temporary tourist visas valid for three months only, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting the head of the Foreign Workers Office at the Kuwait Trade Union Federation AbdulRahman Al-Ghanim. The officials told the daily, the workers arrived into the country on visit visas after paying a lot of money and to their surprise they discovered the visas were cancelled immediately after they entered Kuwait making them illegal as per the local law in force. The official has called on the concerned authorities particularly the Ministry of Interior to allow these Egyptians to return to their country without being fingerprinted which would prevent them from entering the country again. Al-Ghanim has also requested the concerned authorities not to penalize these men in any manner saying they are victims of visa traders.
