Kuwait: Ex-cop poses as officer and robs residents

A former policeman in Kuwait has been sent to jail after he admitted to having posed as a security officer and robbed expatriates.

The ex-lance corporal had admitted to having perpetrated several crimes mainly against illegal expatriates, taking advantage of their fear to be deported from Kuwait.

Authorities had been alerted that a man, appearing clad in a police uniform with the rank of a major inside a private car used to stop expatriates in Al Ahmadi governorate in south Kuwait and rob them of their money.

A police patrol was sent to the site of the man who, on seeing it, tried to flee, but he was chased and arrested. After investigations, the defendant was sent to the Central Prison.
