KUWAIT CITY, Feb 5: The Criminal Court has put behind bars for three years an unidentified female employee working for a ministry for forging her academic certificate and getting benefits on the strength of this forged document, reports Al-Qabas daily. The employee, who is from a wellknown family, allegedly got raise in her salary several times on the strength of this forged certificate.
Informed sources said that although the accused returned all her salaries — about 150,000 dinars — the court affirmed returning the state money does not absolve the accused from punishment, and that the issue was for the court to decide. The same source said, the court fined the accused 150,000 dinars the amount she had earned on the strength of the forged document, in addition to a fine of another 150,000 dinars as a penalty set by law.
