Fugitive turns himself in
A security source said a citizen went to Adan police station and told them he owed a person KD 1.5 million, adding that he was sentenced to five months in jail for being unable to pay back his debt. The citizen gave himself up voluntarily, telling them “I want to relax.”

Food safety
