KUWAIT: On the first day of Ramadan, narcotics detectives arrested a citizen – who had a criminal record in liquor trafficking – with 2,800 imported liquor bottles he intended to store and sell before Eid Al-Fitr. Case papers indicate that narcotics detectives had been tipped off concerning a shipment of electricity generators at Shuwaikh Port with liquor hidden inside.

Arrangements were made with custom inspectors to facilitate the truck’s release to follow it and arrest the receiver, who turned out to be a Kuwaiti. He immediately confessed that he had been importing and smuggling liquor for years and that he had intended to store this latest shipment to sell before Eid.

Courts roundup
The criminal court yesterday postponed hearing citizenship forgery cases until June 18 because the six suspects in the case were not brought from the prison to court. Separately, the administrative court yesterday ordered retroactively paying an employee KD 100 monthly effective from 2012 as supervision allowance. The employee had gone to court demanding his right to receive the allowance, which was approved by the court.
