Personnel from the Criminal Investigations Department have arrested five members of an international network — 2 Kuwaitis, two Jordanians and a Saudi and are seeking the help of Interpol to arrest a Jordanian who has escaped from the country, reports Al-Anba daily. The men are arrested for cashing forged cheques sent from overseas.
They reportedly deducted 10 percent of their commission and then sent the rest of the money to the original beneficiary from an unidentified Arab country. The Saudi has reportedly admitted to forging 20 cheques drawn in favor of the Kuwait International Bank issued by an educational establishment for KD 200,000 with the help of a person in an Arab country. One of the Jordanians has been arrested for forging four cheques worth KD 40,000.
