Three ‘engineers’ arrested for work permits’ forgery

KUWAIT: The electronic linking between government and private entities led to the discovery of a large number of people who entered Kuwait with forged degrees and qualifications, and got jobs and residencies based on them. Head of the Engineers Society Eng Faisal Al-Atal said the prosecution detained three Indian engineers for forging work permits and official documents. He said investigations revealed that the three do not meet conditions of issuing work permits, which is not issued without the engineering society’s approval, and that they forged their work permits based on which they received residency permits. Atal said residency detectives asked about three Indian engineers in the oil sector. The three had files at the society but they were denied accreditation. Investigations are under way.
