100,000 people hold fake Kuwaiti citizenship

March 28, 20180

MP Ahmad Nabil Al-Fadel said there are more than 100,000 people with fake citizenship and the State does not know their origins; indicating the names of these people are in Kuwaiti files.

He claimed these people, who hold citizenship in two countries — Kuwait and their countries of origin, have committed crimes but they cannot be identified because they hold travel documents issued by another country.

He went on to say that the records of the Central System for Remedying the Status of Illegal Residents (CSRSIR) show there are about 7,000 people eligible for naturalization but many of them have been deprived of citizenship and other rights.

He urged the concerned authorities to refrain from enacting a nationality law that might undermine national identity. He pointed out that in 2005, a large number of people were naturalized based on their exemplary service for the nation and it caused uproar as hundreds were naturalized then.

He alleged some people have been trying to tie the government’s hands in terms of expanding the scope of naturalization since 1984.
