Probe on Civil ID bribe case.

In clarification of what is being said regarding the arrest of security company workers and one of the authority’s employees who receive fees for expediting the issuance of civil cards, the authority indicated that it had addressed the Ministry of Interior to make the necessary investigations to uncover the network based on information that reached the Public Authority for Civil Information through some visitors, reports Al-Jarida daily. The daily added, the liaison officers from PACI and the General Directorate of Investigation of the Ministry of Interior will work in coordination to collect the relevant information. These efforts culminated in the arrest of some employees working for the security company and one of the PACI employees, and they were referred to the Public Prosecution.

Meanwhile, PACI confirmed that there is no fraud or forgery in any of the transactions, but only the urgency of issuing and storing cards through the authority available to the accused employee who works in the production of civil cards. Note that since April 2020, during the pandemic, the authority has provided the digital ID and approved alternative to the civil card through the “My Identity” application, in accordance with the decision of the Council of Ministers to consider the application, as all transactions are completed with government agencies and the private sector, in addition to traveling without the need to carry the original card, as 3 million users are said to have used the My Identity application.
