Security employees stationed at the Nuwaiseeb border point have been summoned by the security authorities, after it came to light that a Kuwaiti man, who was banned from traveling abroad, managed to leave the country through the Nuwaiseeb border post.

The authorities were totally unaware that the man had crossed the border and the incident came to light only when the man — for whatever reason — returned to the country through Kuwait International Airport. A vigilant officer at airport immigration noticed that the man did not have an exit stamp on his passport and on further inquiry found that the man had a travel ban against his name.

The man was detained and during interrogation he admitted to leaving the country via Nuwaiseeb border post by hiding under a pile of household items.

The Ministry of Interior has opened an investigation into the incident to determine the shortcomings at the border port, and ensure that no one colluded to help the passenger leave the country. A security source said the ministry will check the surveillance cameras to determine if the circumstances are as reported, and accordingly take appropriate legal action.
