"American eludes arrest in ‘liquor-peddling’ bust; Pakistani, Egyptian ‘deliverymen’ nabbed
KUWAIT CITY, May 21: A team of anti-narcotics officers arrested a Pakistani and an Egyptian for trading in alcohol with 250 bottles of foreign liquor in their possession.
It has been reported the team put an American under surveillance after receiving information that he has been importing liquor into the country and has become popular in the trade over the last years. After gathering enough evidence, the team sent an undercover agent to purchase four bottles of liquor worth KD 270 from the suspect but they were surprised to find the Pakistani and Egyptian in the American’s apartment in Salwa.
The team searched the apartment, resulting in the discovery of 260 bottles of different types of liquor. During interrogations, the suspects told police they got KD 15 for each bottle sold. They were referred to the concerned security department for the necessary legal action.
A case was registered and the authorities have launched a man-hunt for the American."
Now that they have an idea of what this guy looks like they will be putting up check points everywhere and will start harassing innocent Americans. Good job man. I guess he doesn't make enough money contracting???? He has to sell liquor too? Will people ever learn to stop doing illegal stuff? Is it worth a manhunt and losing your job? Wait until they catch the guy and put him in jail. The embassy has no involvement with people, especially those who break this kind of law. I think part of in-processing should be to take all people on a tour of the jails in Kuwait to give them and idea of where they would go if they get caught. A jail cell with 50 other FN men who don't shower, no beds and from what I've heard no food except some rice. If no one knows you're there you will be lost for a long time until someone finds you. No phone calls either.
One guy working for ITT years ago accidently hit and killed an Egyptian worker who ran in front of his car. He was arrested and never heard from for 2 years. Finally after paying blood money he was released and got a job with CSA only to later turn up in the newspaper when he was arrested for drugs. Some people never learn. After that no one knows what happened to him.
I ask everyone, is it really worth losing it all for greed?

"KUWAIT CITY, May 15:
Two young Kuwaiti women sustained injuries in different parts of their bodies when a number of female Asian workers in a famous salon in Jabriya allegedly attacked them.
Eyewitnesses revealed one of the injured paid in advance for the services she wanted to avail from the salon. However, when she arrived in the salon, there were many customers waiting inside. She then asked one of the salon workers to return her money, because she cannot wait in line as she had an appointment. The worker grudgingly returned the money and dealt with the Kuwaiti woman in a bad manner.
When the Kuwaiti woman asked the worker why she was behaving badly, the worker started beating her with the assistance of the other salon staff. The woman then called her sister, who was waiting for her on the ground floor of the building, but the Asian workers took turns in beating them. One of the workers allegedly tried to attack the two Kuwaiti women with a scissor but the other women inside the salon intervened.
The women reported the incident at a nearby police station and investigations are ongoing."
I wonder what's the real story? I've seen the way some people treat the salon employees. There's 2 sides to every story. I doubt it happened as written.

It's a story about the four seasons in a southern island. There was singing and Japanese dances. It never got boring. The presentation told a story about the four seasons. The music was surprisingly cool. I really wanted some of their outfits, they are so colorful.
During intermission we were offered a finger food buffet. Awesome! I saw one of the newspaper photographers running for the door and when I got to the line he was picking up food with his fingers and eating the food right out of the tray. Rude! I would figure that people would realize there's a limited amount of food and several people still in line. I only took a few pieces as I didn't want to be greedy. That didn't stop some of the people from thinking they were at a real buffet. They piled on the food like this was dinner.
The second half of the show was just as good. I really had a nice time and hope Japan can recover from the earthquake and tsunami. I would like to thank the the Embassy of Japan for bringing such a wonderful program, it was beautiful!

Have you seen him? Call 112 now! ; Guards party to crime:
"‘She says I’m impotent’:
A Kuwaiti woman has filed a complaint with the Hawalli police accusing her ex-husband of beating her, reports Al-Rai daily.
The complainant has allegedly submitted a medical report issued by the Mubarak Al-Kabir showing injuries on her body.
When police summoned the ex-husband for interrogation, he admitted to the charge. He said the complainant is his relative and he had divorced her some time ago. He added he was annoyed because three months after the divorce the woman began spreading rumors that he is impotent. He added his tribesmen rejected him and no one offered to marry their daughters to him. The ex-husband has also submitted a medical report refuting the allegations made by the ex-wife. A case has been registered but the man was released on bail."
I just love the newspapers here.
