GCC citizens sentenced to ten-year jail-term for forgery

Three nationals of other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states have been sentenced to ten years imprisonment for forging citizenship and obtaining government jobs. The men were also terminated from their public sector jobs, and ordered to repay the salaries and other perks that they had obtained from the government.

The lawsuit was filed by the Public Prosecution after it received information and conducted investigations on the crimes committed. One of the men is accused of changing his citizenship status to that of a Kuwaiti and adding the names of two of his brothers to the citizenship file by claiming they were his sons.
