An assistant controller in Shuwaikh Port has been arrested for agreeing to allow containers to bypass the customs zone in return for cash and kind bribe, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday.

The General Department for Criminal Investigations (Money Crimes Control) was tipped off that the Kuwaiti employee had agreed with a Syrian expatriate to let the three containers out of the Port unexamined in return for KD 60,000 in cash, and kind bribe that included air tickets, the ministry's Security Media Department said in a statement.

It added that the police managed to record and audio conversation between both, noting that they had cooperated together many times since June, and that the employee had helped other traders. The two suspects were referred to the concerned authorities.
