KUWAIT: A person with dual citizenship was caught at Nuwaiseeb border outlet and charged with forging citizenship, as he was carrying his Kuwaiti and Saudi documents together, using two different names but the same photo. He was later found wanted to serve jail sentences and convicted in 19 felony and civil cases. The suspect arrived along with a Saudi man, but when security men decided to search them, they argued and refused to be searched, prompting customs officials to search them physically. They discovered that the Saudi man was carrying a Kuwaiti civil ID and passport, in addition to a Saudi ID which he used to exit Kuwait. Security men noticed during interrogations that the pictures match on all Kuwaiti and Saudi documents, though the name is different, so he was arrested for forgery. When the suspect was sent to nationality and passport detectives, he was found wanted on 19 cases, and confessed to being a dual citizen.
