15 police officers arrested on corruption charges

April 14th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics

15 police officers have been arrested in the Souq Al-Hamidiyeh area. 


They are accused of corruption and thefts from shops. It is alleged that the fifteen police officers have been stealing for a whole year.

The Security Branch says a small number of them were caught at night with goods stolen from shops in the Hamidiyeh/Hariqa area. A stash of many more items was soon discovered.

If they are found guilty, they will be expelled from the force.

    “…they will be expelled from the force.”

    We need a Syrian Erik Estrada to woop things back into shape!
