KUWAIT CITY, June 7: The Criminal Court has ordered release of three Saudi nationals on KD 1,000 bail bond per person. The trio is accused of forging Kuwaiti citizenship, and the court insisted they remain under travel ban until the petitions filed by General Department for Citizenship and Passports are cleared.
The case was adjourned until Oct 18. Case files indicate the Investigation and Follow-up Unit at the General Department for Citizenship and Passports received a tip off concerning the activities of a gang specialized in forging Kuwaiti citizenship.
Officers gathered information that the Saudi-born siblings identified as A.M, H.M and M.M obtained Kuwaiti citizenship with bogus names. They are said to have deceived the official authorities with misleading proofs enabling them to collect huge funds, which only citizens are entitled to.
They uncovered the brain behind the fraud; a 1950-born Saudi man who was determined to ensure that his three children obtained the Kuwaiti citizenship in 1998. He liaised with three Kuwaitis and paid them to include each of his three children on their individual files.
He succeeded in his mission, as the unscrupulous citizens pushed through with the files and enabled the Saudis to relocate to Kuwait through issuance of documents, including passport and civil ID card from Kuwaiti embassy in Riyadh.
‘Execute death ruling’: The lawyer representing the victims of the bomb attack in Imam Al-Sadeq Mosque last Ramadan lawyer Ali Al-Ali has requested Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Interior to execute the death sentence issued against Abdulrahman Sabah, who was responsible for taking the suicide bomber Fahad Al-Qabaa to the mosque, on the anniversary of the incident, which had occurred on Friday, June 26, 2015.
Lawyer Al-Ali said the death sentence is a fair punishment for criminals who cause the death of innocent people and provoke chaos among the people of the nation. He insisted that such criminals will never meet their objectives as the Kuwaiti people are aware of their tricks and will unite to confront their evil schemes. He explained that the Cassation Court closed the case of the bomb attack, which occurred last June and led to the death of 26 individuals and injuries to 250 others, by upholding the verdict issued by the Court of Appeals.
