KUWAIT: A police officer was arrested and referred to the public prosecution on charges of forging official documents, said security sources. Case papers indicate that a first lieutenant brought his pregnant sister back to Kuwait from Saudi Arabia after her husband divorced her. The sources added that the officer admitted his sister to hospital under his wife’s name and thus registered the child under his name so that the baby could get Kuwaiti citizenship.
A recent report made by the State Audit Bureau stressed finding large quantities of expired medicines in health ministry warehouses in Subhan in 2012, 2013 and 2014, with a total cost of KD 8 million. The bureau also reported that nothing had been done on the ministry’s side to limit those quantities and stop wasting public funds.
