Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Department have arrested an expatriate for forging academic certificates and selling them to prospective candidates for KD 200 each, reports Al-Shahed daily. A security source said the arrest came after the Criminal Investigations Department received a tip-off about the activity of the suspect who was helping expatriates acquire driving licences.
The CID men then set a trap for the suspect and caught him red-handed while selling a forged certificate to an undercover police agent. Police have seized from the man’s apartment several forged certificates and equipment used in the trade including a computer.
Fake labor targeted: The Kuwait Public Manpower Authority (PAM) will soon embark on inspection campaigns to identify fake labor in the industrial, agricultural, trading and contracting sectors, reports Al-Anba daily. Sources close to the PAM said the authority will close the files of institutes if they are found to be violating the labor laws. Their licences will be cancelled; the owners will be ordered to pay fines and may even end up behind bars.
