Kuwait’s Customs department has announced the seizure of a yacht of a famous social media celebrity who tried to smuggle different brands of alcohol. On inspection, 693 liquor bottles were found inside the yacht that had a Kuwaiti citizen and a Filipino expat.
Following the bust, Yaqoub Boushehri, a Kuwait social media celebrity, confirmed that the yacht belongs to him and asked his followers and fans to wait for the outcome of the investigation. He said he is ready to fly back from London if he was asked to.
Following preliminary investigation, Kuwait authorities have issued an order to arrest Boushehri and issued a circular to all air and land ports to refer him to the public prosecution once he is back in the country.
