KUWAIT: A Syrian man and his son bought several trailer trucks for KD 1.4 million and were to pay in installments. Then the dealers learned that the two had left the country after they were late in making payments. The dealers attempted to repossess the vehicles only to find out that the Syrians had sold them to a third party for KD 1 million. This raised the question of how the men were able to transfer the titles when there remained a lien against it. Detectives investigating the issue discovered that a Traffic Department employee helped transfer the title by removing the note in the computer system marking that the title had a lien against it. This enabled the men to sell several of the vehicles, take the money and flee the country.
