Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Me­shaal Al-Enezi

KUWAIT: The crim­i­nal court yes­ter­day ab­stained from pun­ish­ing a Syr­ian na­tional who had been ar­rested over charges of im­per­son­at­ing as a po­lice cap­tain, and only com­mit­ted him to show good con­duct. No­tably, the man had been stopped in Far­waniya by pa­trol of­fi­cers af­ter he looked ner­vous. He first showed them a forged ID be­fore pro­duc­ing his real one. On search­ing him, po­lice­men found pho­tos of him dressed in a po­lice cap­tain’s uni­form in ad­di­tion to a num­ber of fake IDs. The man is cur­rently be­ing held pend­ing de­por­ta­tion pro­ce­dures.

For­mer chief

The court of cas­sa­tion yes­ter­day ad­journed a case de­mand­ing the re­turn of Kuwait Air­ways’ for­mer chair­man Sami Al-Nisf back to his po­si­tion. No­tably, Nisf had been sus­pended by a Min­istry of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions’ de­ci­sion over sign­ing a deal with an In­dian air­line to pur­chase used air­crafts.

Of­fend­ers sen­tenced

The com­pre­hen­sive court yes­ter­day sen­tenced a gang of Arab ex­pats to four years in prison over charges of black­mail­ing a chan­cel­lor work­ing in Kuwaiti courts and slan­der­ing him over so­cial me­dia net­works.

Man­power author­ity

Well-in­formed sources at the Man­power Pub­lic Author­ity said that 980 files had been trans­ferred from Mubarak Al-Kabeer la­bor depart­ment to Ah­madi. The sources ex­plained that the files were re­lated to Pub­lic Author­ity for Agri­cul­tural Af­fairs and Fish Re­sources (PAAAFR) ac­tiv­i­ties and that this step was meant to make it eas­ier for Mubarak Al-Kabeer to fo­cus more on small and medium projects and en­trepreneurs. In an­other con­cern, the sources said that act­ing man­power author­ity di­rec­tor Ahmed Al-Mousa made three con­sec­u­tive vis­its to the Hawally la­bor depart­ment fol­low­ing a sud­den in­spec­tion by min­is­ter Hind Al-Subaih, dur­ing which she or­dered in­creas­ing the depart­ment’s staff to meet the grow­ing num­ber of ap­pli­ca­tions.
