KUWAIT CITY, March 4: The Ministry of Interior has submitted a report to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs detailing reasons why 85 Syrians have been prevented from entering the country although they hold valid residence permits, reports Al-Rai daily. According to reliable sources the passport reading machine installed at the airport by the Criminal Evidences Department failed to read the passport which signifies the passports are not machine readable and are forged. The machine was unable to read the water mark in the passports which is considered security against forgery although the passports have been issued by the official Syrian authorities. The devices at the airport show these passports are forged because the pages used in the passport are photocopies and not original papers. The sources added the Ministry of Interior has requested the Foreign Ministry to inform the Syrian authorities to resolve this dilemma and replace these passports with new documents.
