KUWAIT: Residency detectives discovered that a farm's owner had manipulated the farm's labor assessment records in official records and managed to hire more workers than he is legally allowed to. Investigations revealed that he sponsored 200 workers instead of the maximum number of 115 allowed. Security sources said the owner denied all charges, adding that an Arab representative working for him was responsible for the forgery. The representative confessed to using fake documents to change the assessment figure. A case was filed and further investigations are in progress.
