The same court also refrained from issuing a verdict against 16 others for unknown reasons. The daily added, the forgery was discovered when the certificates were submitted to Kuwait’s Ministry of Education for accreditation. According to court papers the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, Private Education Dept, of Kuwait notified the Saudi Embassy in Kuwait that the certificates issued by Saudi Arabia contained false data and provided the embassy the names of the students. When the embassy cross checked, it was discovered the certificates had been tampered with.

It is worth mentioning the suspect had denied the allegations during a court session.
