He also indicated that he works as per the wage against work system in the ministry since five years. The social media has published a picture of a civil ID of an Egyptian which shows his designation as café worker, while he represents the Ministry of Health and appears before the Public Prosecution as a legal researcher.

Lawyer Imad Al-Seif said on his Twitter account: “I do not believe, and I do not want to believe, and I live in a state of denials, that whoever attended as legal representative of the Ministry of Health to investigate a complaint before the Public Prosecution, is an expatriate whose civil ID shows that he is sponsored by a café in Hawalli.”

According to another report, the expatriate attended one of the trial sessions in a case where one of the parties was the Ministry of Health. The Public Prosecution asked him about the nature of his work and his job specialization, and he answered that he works in the Ministry’s legal affairs department and represents the ministry by appearing before the prosecution.
