Kuwait City: The certificates of thousands of foreigners employed in private sector in Kuwait are fake, it is reported. They are working in higher positions without any approval of Central Civil Service Commission or government authority.
The Higher Education Council can intervene in the issue only if the company owners request to verify the authenticity of the certificates of foreign citizens. Also, the procedures for verifying the certificates are time consuming. Meanwhile, Kuwait Engineers Society informed that they have accredited the graduation certificates of 25,000 foreign engineers in private sector.
The law is strictly enforced after a rule came into force that the certificates of the engineers who are currently in service should be approved by the Accreditation Authority. With this, many engineers from Kerala and other places have changed their job to managerial posts and others.
