KUWAIT CITY, June 2: The Ministry of Health has discovered about 50 fake sick leave certificates issued to the National Assembly staff, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The daily added a detailed report about the names of persons and the date on which the sick leaves were issued will be sent to the concerned authorities for necessary action.
