A Syrian national who had fraudulently acquired Kuwaiti citizenship 22 years ago has been arrested by the authorities in Kuwait.
According to the report published by Khaleej Times, He was arrested after his wife, in a fit of anger, reported about him to the authorities. She revealed that her husband was originally a Syrian and had forged documents to obtain Kuwaiti citizenship, and also took up a job in the public sector as Kuwaiti.
Her nationality was ascertained after a DNA test and investigations revealed that he had entered the Gulf state with a Syrian passport, reported Kuwaiti daily Al Qabas.
The wife in her conversation with the police authorities made a revelation that her husband had lied about his nationality before getting married. She didn’t divulge it to anybody after her marriage but could not longer restrain herself after he began criticising Kuwaitis.
After his Syrian identity is exposed, he and his children stand to lose their Kuwaiti status as per the Kuwaiti law.
