300,000 illegally obtained Kuwaiti citizenship

January 10, 20180 Comments

A Kuwaiti lawmaker claimed that out of the 1.3 million Kuwaitis, only one million were genuine while the remaining 300,000 had obtained it fraudulently.

“I applaud the efforts of the Ministry of Interior in trapping those who forged documents to obtain the Kuwaiti citizenship illegally,” MP Safa Al Hashem said.

“Should they pursue their efforts relentlessly to trap the rats who obtained the citizenship illegally, they will find 300,000 forgers and the number of genuine Kuwaitis will go back to its real level, which is around one million,” she said, quoted by Kuwaiti daily Al Rai on Wednesday.

Al Hashem was speaking amid reports about the discovery of new cases of foreigners, mainly Syrians, who obtained the Kuwaiti citizenship through forged documents often with the complicity of Kuwaitis who were paid for their illegal services.
