KUWAIT CITY, Oct 28: The Hawalli police raided an apartment in Salmiya which was turned into a dental clinic in Salmiya and arrested a Filipino couple, reports Al-Anba daily. The daily added, the man works for a contracting company and the woman is a housewife and has nothing to do with dentistry.
The arrest came after an Egyptian informed the authorities that the couple was running the ‘dental clinic’ without a license.
