He sent 15,000 Kuwaiti dinars earned through the scam to Bangladesh
A Bangladeshi expatriate has been arrested by Kuwait police for taking bribes from people in exchange for letting them illegally renew their car licence with the Ministry of Interior of the country.
The arrested was identified as Saddam Hussein, reports Arab Times quoting Kuwait police.
He earned 30,000 Kuwaiti dinars by executing the fraudulent operation in partnership with a staff member of the Ahmadi Traffic Department of the state over the last three months.
Saddam admitted to sending half of that money to Bangladesh.
Police said the two of them used to take 20 Kuwaiti dinars as bribe for allowing people to get their licence renewed without a prior appointment.
Saddam confessed to being the middleman in the fraud — the Ahmadi Traffic Department staffer completed the transaction and Saddam handed back the licences to the customers.
The Ahmadi Traffic Department employee was also questioned by Kuwait police. She denied the accusations initially but eventually admitted to participating in the crime.
