Fugitive nabbed
Authorities sent a bedoon to central prison to serve a seven-year jail sentence. The bedoon was arrested upon his arrival at Kuwait airport with a European passport, although he left the country using a Kuwaiti passport. The bedoon was involved in a forgery case for which he was sentenced to seven years followed by deportation after he was able to leave the country using the passport of a Kuwaiti. Police authorities said the bedoon while abroad insulted Kuwait and its leadership by organizing activities and demonstrations in front of Kuwait embassies, especially during national days, and also used his Twitter account as a platform to attack Kuwait and its leadership. Sources said some of the suspect’s family members are Iraqis who left Kuwait after liberation in 1991 and live in Nasiriya province, while others remained in Kuwait and are considered bedoons. The suspect will face other charges for insulting Kuwait. – Translated by Kuwait Times from Al-Rai
