KUWAIT CITY, Dec 7: The Farwaniya police have taken into custody an unidentified Pakistani for impersonating a Kuwaiti, reports Al-Anba daily. According to the daily the Pakistani, who speaks the Kuwaiti dialect fluently, works for two lawyers and his job was to contact the police stations when a verdict in absentia is issued against Kuwaitis for their arrest.
The sources said the Pakistani, according to his civil ID designation is supposed to be working for a contracting company and not as a representative in the field. When he went to the Farwaniya Police Station the officer in charge suspected him and asked him for his ID. Feeling trapped, the man pretended to have left it in his car in a vain attempt to escape.
However, he was seized and when police checked his ID they discovered the truth. The man has been detained and referred for interrogation. In the meantime, the two lawyers who hired him will be summoned for interrogation.
