New measures target citizenship and educational certificate forgery.

KUWAIT CITY, June 6: In a decisive move against the forgery of citizenship and educational certificates, an informed source revealed to Al-Qabas that such crimes will not be subject to the statute of limitations. Unlike other fraud crimes, which are typically dismissed 15 years after being committed, forgery involving citizenship and educational documents will continue to be prosecutable indefinitely.

The source emphasized that the enduring impact of these crimes justifies their exemption from the statute of limitations. Individuals who commit these forgeries continue to receive salaries, benefits, and allowances based on the falsified documents, perpetuating the crime’s consequences.

The source clarified the distinction between forgery in a document that has not been used since the incident and forgery in an official document that continues to be used. The latter, involving ongoing deception and benefit from false information, remains prosecutable regardless of the time elapsed.

Regarding the latest developments in the crackdown on fake academic certificates, the source disclosed that some government agencies are considering halting allowances for individuals who refuse to submit their certificates for accreditation. These individuals have been receiving benefits based on potentially fraudulent credentials.

The source concluded that government agencies are adopting a gradual approach in imposing penalties, which could include referral to the prosecution for those involved in the forgery of educational certificates.
