KUWAIT CITY, Aug 30: After discovering and arresting a number of expatriates who were deported from Kuwait for various reasons and were slapped with entry ban and returned to the country after performing plastic surgeries on their fingers in their countries and forging travel documents, the Ministry of Interior decided to clamp down on the fraudsters by not only fingerprinting the deportees, but also taking their biometric fingerprints, reports Al-Rai daily. The daily has learned from security sources that, that based on the instructions of the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Khaled Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah regarding setting up a mechanism to limit the entry of any expatriate who is deported from the country, the General Administration of Deportation will begin, starting from next Sunday, biometric fingerprinting for all male and female deportees.
