KUWAIT CITY, Oct 15: The Court of Cassation sentenced a Kuwaiti citizen, who was accused of forgery, to seven-year imprisonment with hard labor, and obliged him to return double the salaries he received, and the benefits he obtained through his employment in a government agency.

During investigations, it was revealed that the accused’s father, who is a fugitive, had hidden his son’s actual nationality, which is Syrian, and placed his details, at the time of his birth, under the name of a deceased Kuwaiti citizen, so that he became a Kuwaiti citizen through forgery. Among the evidence that contributed to convicting the accused and proving that he had falsified nationality was the testimony of the accused’s uncle when he came for investigations and was asked if he knew the person in the picture. He replied by saying, “Yes, this is my nephew, who is a Syrian, not a Kuwaiti.”
