Kuwait Na­tional Assem­bly build­ing was de­signed by Dan­ish ar­chi­tect Jorn Ut­zon in 1972 un­der the di­rec­tion of his son Jan and was opened in 1986. KUWAIT CITY, Sept 28: De­tec­tives from Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Depart­ment de­tained a po­lice­man from Saad Al-Ab­dul­lah Acad­emy for Se­cu­rity Sciences and an un­em­ployed in­di­vid­ual who were ac­cused of rob­bing ex­pa­tri­ates. They are on the look­out for a po­lice­man from the Fal­si­fi­ca­tion Unit of Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Depart­ment who is the head of the gang, re­ports Al-Anba daily.

Ac­cord­ing to se­cu­rity sources, the po­lice re­ceived sev­eral com­plaints in­clud­ing some from sales­men of var­i­ous shops, against three thieves, two of who had po­lice IDs.

The rob­bers used to stop ex­pa­tri­ates who are vi­o­la­tors of the res­i­dency law and rob them of their pos­ses­sions, and then de­mand them to go a po­lice sta­tion and wait for them there.

As for shops, the po­lice­man who is at large used to visit shops, check the civil IDs of the ex­pa­tri­ate sales­men, and play the same game if they are found to be in vi­o­la­tion of the la­bor law.

Af­ter in­ten­sive in­ves­ti­ga­tions, de­tec­tives raided the houses of the two sus­pects in Abu Hal­ifa and Al-Riqqa ar­eas, ar­rested them and re­ferred them to the au­thor­i­ties where vic­tims rec­og­nized them in a po­lice lineup.

Re­port­edly, the po­lice­man used a po­lice ve­hi­cle for his crimes and had once even crashed into the car of one of the vic­tims and sped off.

Po­lice raided the house of the key sus­pect, the head of the gang, but he was not there. In­ves­ti­ga­tions are un­der­way to find and arrest him.
