3 years imprisonment for 8 Kuwaitis who received “employment support” without work

In one of several cases pending before Kuwaiti courts, and in a strict ruling, the Criminal Court sentenced 8 Kuwaiti citizens, including a female citizen, to imprisonment for 3 years with work and enforcement, in the case of seizing state funds by unlawfully disbursing “employment support.”

The prosecution had charged the defendants with receiving sums of money from the state such as "labor support" salaries, but they did not do the work, which is considered a theft of state funds.
