420 arrested in Jleeb raid
December 3, 2013, 10:39 pm

A raid in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh yesterday resulted in the arrest of 420 individuals in violation of visa laws or wanted for various cases. The Ministry of Interior’s security media department said that the majority of the visa violators hold article 20 residency visas (domestic laborers) and had deserted their sponsors without the latter reporting them as absconders. “The sponsors will be held accountable as well,” the department vowed.

Assistant undersecretary for citizenship and passports affairs Maj Gen Faisal Al-Nawaf said the drive was part of a series of campaigns organized in collaboration with other departments “to eliminate all negative phenomena”. The campaign led by Nawaf also included immigration detectives director Brig Ghazi Al-Lumai and special forces manager Brig Ali Madhi and a number of police and traffic patrols.
