The head of security at Kuwait International Airport and numerous high ranking officials have been penalised after a foreigner was able to sneak onto a minister’s plane, Kuwait Times reported.
The airport’s security director, his assistant, the manager of security surveillance, the preventive security officer, the chief of protocol and his assistant, heads of related departments and members of the force assigned to secure the government terminal were reportedly reprimanded.
An Asian national was caught on a flight that should have been secure for the Interior Ministry’s Undersecretary Lieutenant General Suleiman Al Fahad, the daily said.
“Airport security director and his assistant received a notice of warning, while the chief of protocol, his assistant and the head of the protocol department were transferred to other positions.”
Other officers and security agents had their salaries deducted and/or were transferred.
security here is very bad where both arriving and departing passengers mix there is no other airport that does this. also all arrivals go through a scanner where they are not paying attention I can admit now I have bought contraband ie Pork etc in and not been caught and it is well known by the expat community how to do it
