KUWAIT CITY, Feb 4: The Criminal Court has sentenced a government employee “engineer” in Kuwait Municipality to a jail term of three years and four months after convicting him of committing fraud through falsification of specifications of a real estate which was to be demolished.

The court also acquitted the landlord who was accused of being an accomplice in that fraud. According to the case files, the Public Prosecution charged the defendant and others with forgery of official documents related to building the specs of a property in Hawally Governorate.
