Two expatriate men have been sentenced to three months in jail and subsequent deportation for violating the residency laws and regulations.
Local Arabic daily Arrayah reported on Monday that the Court of Misdemeanour convicted them of buying two work visas and obtaining residency in the country based on fraudulent work contracts.
The duo was also convicted of working for themselves, after quitting the work at their original recruiter. At the prosecution interrogations, they admitted that they bought the visas from the original recruiter based on false work contracts, with the intention of adopting freelance jobs in the country and conducting their own private business transactions. Accordingly, the court convicted them for illegal visa trade.
