The Court of Appeals ordered the arrest of a colonel in the Ministry of Interior and some expatriates for stealing from the Police Cooperative Society and laundering money.

The court also decided to adjourn the session until March 1.

Earlier, the Criminal Court sentenced the colonel to 15 years in jail while seven Egyptians and Yemenis were sentenced to seven to 10 years. The court also instructed all of them to pay KD 1,068,000.

This came after the ministry referred the accused to the Public Prosecution after the Criminal Investigation Department discovered a remarkable increase in the balance of the colonel’s bank account. During investigation, he confessed that he instructed seven officers to deposit money from the cooperative to his personal account as award for his efforts in his work.

The other accused denied the charges, saying they do not know why the colonel ordered them to deposit the money to his account, asserting they just followed his instructions.
