An Egyptian nurse has been sentenced to ten years in prison by the Criminal Court for forging her documents in order to secure a job with the Ministry of Health. In addition to the prison sentence, she has been fined KD 21,000 for receiving undeserved salaries over a period of five years, reported Al-Seyassah.
Another individual involved in forging the nurse’s appointment has been fined KD 5,000.
