Al-Sarhid reports theft of cruiser, seeks help of Foreign Ministry

Abdullah Al-Sarhid, a member of the Kuwaiti Fishermen’s Union, has filed a complaint with the Fahaheel Police Station, accusing three expatriates of stealing his personal cruiser and fleeing with it to their home country.

Speaking at a press conference held yesterday, Al-Sarhid announced he will submit a comprehensive report to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to recover the stolen boat and pursue legal action against the suspects, reports Al-Anba daily.

Al-Sarhid vehemently refuted rumors suggesting that the defendants had gone unpaid for two years or that he had mistreated them and withheld their passports. He labeled such claims as baseless fabrications and outright lies.

He further disclosed that he had been summoned by the expatriate embassy, where he was presented with official travel ban orders against the accused. Al-Sarhid expressed his willingness to cover the cost of their travel tickets if the embassy could facilitate their departure.

Emphasizing Kuwait’s commitment to upholding the rule of law and protecting workers’ rights, Al-Sarhid condemned the accused individuals’ actions, highlighting the need for international deterrents against such crimes.

Regrettably, Al-Sarhid noted another recent incident involving the disappearance of a colleague’s boat, underscoring the growing concern within the fishing community and revealed that authorities in the expatriates’ home country have apprehended the fugitives, who have since contacted him via video calls to provide their testimonies. They now face charges of boat theft, illegal entry into another country.

Media outlets had previously reported on the incident, detailing how three expatriates absconded with a boat and returned to their native land.
