‘Brothers’ whom I don’t know

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 14: The General Department for Nationality and Travel Documents has received several complaints from Kuwaitis — whose identities have not been disclosed — who claim they have ‘brothers’ in their father’s file of whom they have never heard of or seen, reports Arab Times daily.

The daily added, these ‘brothers’ have either acquired the nationality fraudulently or they were added to the file with the knowledge of their father in return for money.

However, a source at the department says 99 percent of these complaints, which were filed when the department was preparing memos to withdraw the nationality of those who had acquired it fraudulently, are genuine but much time is needed to ascertain their authenticity.

The source added, these ‘illegal’ brothers can be a source of problem in future when it comes to inheritance and marriage.
