An Egyptian expatriate working as mandoub was arrested by officers from General Department for Residence Investigation Affairs on accusation of forging work permits for money.
An Interior Ministry press release said the mandoub aroused suspicion of an employee of the Immigration and Citizenship Department while he was issuing a work permit for a laborer on the sponsorship of a farm owner when he discovered that 60 laborers were already registered on the file of the farm owner.
Detectives discovered that the suspect sold each work permit for KD 500 without notifying the sponsor, and he was convicted to serve three years in prison for gorgery-related offense. He was referred to concerned authorities. A case was registered against him.
