KUWAIT CITY, May 12: Interpol is looking for Kuwaiti Hamad Al-Haroun who is said to have slipped out of the country through the Nuwaiseeb border post, reports Al-Rai daily. The daily added, Haroun fled from Kuwait in March last year, using false identity to Saudi Arabia, then to Dubai before leaving for London for fear of arrest.
The Interpol decision to place Haroun within the international wanted list (according to the Red Notice) came at the request of Kuwait in a move to arrest him and hand him over to complete the judicial and legal procedures, due to his involvement in several cases in Kuwait and a number of other countries.
The Criminal Court in last January had sentenced Haroun to 10 years imprisonment in absentia for forging official documents.
It is noteworthy to mention Al-Haroun was also involved in several cases, including sedition for promoting false and fabricated accusations against a number of Kuwaiti officials as well as his involvement in the so-called case ‘Fintas Group’ and was charged with compromising the state security and insulting HH the Amir and the Crown Prince and misusing the media means.
Apart from Kuwait, Haroun is wanted by both Jordan and Qatar in financial cases and a huge fraud, involving falsification of documents related to the sale of shares in social security in the Housing Bank in Jordan, and the second on charges of forgery in official documents and impersonation to rig the sale and transfer of shares and ownership of companies and stakes.
The Ministry of Interior responded through its security media to an appeal made by a citizen who was prevented from going to Umrah because of an illusory debt, reports Al-Rai daily.
This came after a local court acquitted the man of the debt and asked him to visit the Sentences Enforcement Department with the verdict issued by the court.
According to a copy sent to the daily, the House of Corrections (penitentiaries) and Sentences Enforcement Department has promised to study the case in line with the procedures and bylaws.
