Meanwhile, inspectors filed 31 citations during a similar crackdown at restaurants and shops in Qurain. Furthermore, 60 kilograms of expired food were confiscated and six shops were closed during a crackdown in Farwaniya.

Officer faces charges

A policeman faces charges after he appeared in uniform in a video circulated on social media accompanied by a woman in a compromising position. Police arrested their colleague, along with the girl who was found at a personal property in Kabd and was under the influence of alcohol at the time of arrest, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. The two were sent to the proper authorities for further action.

Illegals arrested

Police arrested 26 people for violating residency and visa regulations. The suspects were arrested in an ambush carried out by police after detectives verified information about their illegal activities.

They were taken to the relevant authorities to face charges.
