200 illegal residents, wanted expats arrested in Jleeb

KUWAIT: In continuation of the surprise inspections conducted by the Ministry of Interior (MOI), another raid, led by MOI’s assistant undersecretary for Citizenship and Passport Affairs, Maj. General Faisal Al-Nawaf, was carried out yesterday in Jleeb. As a result, 200 expats were arrested for various violations involving expired residency visas, working for people other than sponsors and engaging in domestic labor while holding article 20 residency visas, among other things. The raiding team comprised officials from the immigration, traffic, Special Forces, public relations and moral guidance departments. While commenting on the raid, MOI’s security media department urged both citizens and expats to hold their IDs at all times, as inspection campaigns will continue in order to track down, arrest and deport illegal residents and those violating Kuwait’s residency laws.
