KUWAIT CITY, Dec 16: The Criminal Court issued its second verdict on cases concerning fake academic certificates involving two Egyptian employees of the Ministry of Higher Education and a Kuwaiti who forged a university degree to secure a job as Legal Researcher in the Ministry of Interior.
The court refrained from issuing punishment against the defendants and ordered them to maintain good conduct for a period of two years and with financial guarantee of KD 300 each. The case files indicated one of the Egyptians admitted to forging many university certificates credited to universities in Egypt for KD 500 per certificate, with the help of his compatriot involved in several cases, who fled the country.
It is worth mentioning the criminal court had issued its first ruling about a week ago in which two Egyptian were sentenced to five years in prison with hard labor, alongside a citizen who presented a fake certificate to be employed as a prosecutor.
