Drug smuggling foiled; Corruption in residency affairs


KUWAIT: Police at the Central Prison foiled several attempts by prisoners to smuggle drugs into the prison. One prisoner attempted to bring in 12 nylon rolls he had somehow obtained during a visit to court. In another incident, authorities found a solid yellow roll hidden in the electric box of a bus that was transferring prisoners from court to prison. A total of 23 rolls were found in a cell in addition to other smuggled material, besides significant sums of money.
