Boozers to losers! Kuwaiti couple caught in illegal liquor trade

Published January 17th, 2016 - 06:49 GMT

Ahmadi detectives arrested a citizen and an Asian woman for trading in liquor, said security sources.

Case papers indicate that detectives had been tipped off concerning the suspects' activities and after close surveillance, an undercover agent was sent to make a deal with the suspects, who were arrested red-handed.

On searching their house, detectives found 49 bottles of liquor and KD 1,687 in cash. A case was filed.

Alcohol has been banned in Kuwait since 1964, though that has not deterred some people from home-brewing or engaging in illegal activities.
