Interior ministry terminates contract of employee for threatening

KUWAIT: The Interior Ministry terminated the contract of an employee who appeared in video footage circulated on social media threatening to ‘cut off the hand of whoever assaults’ him. The termination order came over accusations of instigating violence, showing disrespect towards the country’s laws and disturbing general order. The suspect, Egyptian, was reported to senior ministry officials who ultimately made the decision to terminate his contract.

Hawalli detectives arrested an expat for swindling KD 10,000 from four citizens to open a restaurant and café. After receiving the money, the suspect vanished and stopped answering the citizens’ calls. On checking the place the suspect claimed to have rented for the project, the citizens found out that it belonged to someone else. A fraud case was filed and the suspect was arrested pending further investigations.
