Bangladeshi held in Kuwait for vehicular licence scam

Kuwait police have arrested a Bangladeshi expat for taking bribe from people in exchange of illegally allowing them to renew car licence with the ministry of interior of the country.

The arrestee, Saddam Hussein, earned 30,000 Kuwaiti dinar by pulling off the scam in partnership with an employee of Ahmadi Traffic Department of the state over the last three months, reports Arab Times quoting Kuwait police.

During initial interrogation by the police, he reportedly admitted to remitting half of the money to Bangladesh.

The duo used to take KD 20 bribe for letting people get their licence renewed without a prior appointment and split the money, police revealed.

Saddam admitted to being the middleman in the scam. While the employee of Ahmadi Traffic Department completed the transaction, he handed the licences back to the customers.
