Kuwait: Investigations are ongoing in a case involving a tow truck driver who alleges that a police officer stole an impounded luxury sports car. The police officer was assigned to accompany the tow truck driver to transfer the car to the impound lot, but with the help of five other suspects, he managed to steal the vehicle. The tow truck driver, who works for a local company that has a contract with the Interior Ministry, told police that the policeman had accompanied him to move the car from the impound garage to Salmi.

The driver gave this explanation to the police after the incident, and a case was filed.
