The High Criminal Court has sentenced an Arab businessman to five years behind bars for trying to use one of his employee’s passports to flee the country.

An Asian man, supporting the businessman, was also tried and sentenced to five years in prison.

The defendant is said to have attempted to use the passport without the approval of his employee and justified it because his name was on the ban list, alleging that he needed to go home urgently to see his sick father.

Customs officers were already put on alert by the Director-General of Anti-Corruption and Economic and Electronic Security, which received a tipoff on the man’s plan and he booked a flight under a different person’s name. The arrest took place just before he boarded the plane.

Putting your citizens in jail for anything or nothing is never going to improve the image of the ruling. All is just to surpress the people and put them in more misery. Police personnel are usually the culprits in such corrupt societies
