July 31, 2017, 8:20 am

The Public Prosecution is currently investigating a crime of fraud and embezzlement of KD 1 million by two employees of Ministry of Health, reports local daily.

According to informed sources, the defendants — a Kuwaiti and an Egyptian — forged cheques for six transactions related to overseas medical treatment. Each patient had to receive a cheque worth KD 10,000 to KD 25,000, but the employees added the number zero to this amount. They then asked the patients to take the due money and handover the rest after convincing them that the rest of the amount was allocated for other patients. The patients did that.

The source explained that the Public Prosecution summoned four of the patients but it became clear that three of them have nothing to do with the act of the two suspects due to which they were released on bail.

The Kuwaiti employee admitted to the act and expressed willingness to return the seized amounts. The citizen has been detained and a warrant for the arrest of his Egyptian accomplice has been issued.
