An expat lady could not stay away from her boyfriend after being deported from Bahrain for practicing prostitution. She returned to him with the help of a forged passport belonging to her friend. She took advantage of the similar look between them, but she was caught by the security and was transferred to the Supreme Criminal Court. The court decided to postpone the hearing of her case to January 19 as she was ordered to remain in detention.

Details go back to when the airport police directorate received information that the accused was expelled from the country on September 5, 2018, but she used a stolen passport in the name of her friend to return to the country and was seized in a hotel.

The defendant admitted the incident, noting that she was expelled in September 2018 due to a prostitution case and was deported, but in December of the same year, she stole a passport from her friend while they were in one of the GCC countries and used it to enter Bahrain again. She justified her actions by saying that she wanted to stay with her GCC boyfriend.
