General Department of Residency Investigation arrested a Bedoun man for collecting donations illegally, reports Al-Seyassah daily. Information reaching the sector indicated the suspect was collecting donations from citizens in coordination with a woman who approached unsuspecting citizens to tell them about some charity projects in the pipeline, such as digging of wells and building mosques.

The suspect would then follow up to collect the money from donors. In a statement, the Public Relations and Security Information Department said the first suspect (Bedoun) was arrested with receipts valued at KD 60,000, and he confessed collecting donations on behalf of a bogus charity institute, and received specific commission for his service. He led security operatives to the charity in question, run by a Kuwaiti citizen who owns a posh car. The citizen was also taken into custody, and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor has since been addressed to close the file of the company. Some female employees of the company were also summoned for investigation. Public Relations and Security Information Department calls upon citizens and expatriates to desist from donating through unlicensed charities and Foundations to ensure their donations reach those truly in need of them.
