Pinoy couple arrested for selling pork in Kuwait

A Filipino couple was arrested by Kuwaiti police after packs of processed pork were found in their home.
Citing Arabic news site Al Rai, Arab Times Online reported that Al Fintas and Ahmadi authorities found 30 kilos of smuggled pork in the couple's apartment in Mahboula.
Authorities said the couple, identified only as M and J, sold the meat for KD 9 per kilo.
Kuwait police made the arrest after local authorities were tipped off by an agent about the couple's activity.
The two were charged for carrying out an illegal business activity.
All "alcoholic beverages and associated materials, beef, pigs, pork, pigskin products (such as handbags, wallets)" are denied entry into Kuwait, a Muslim country, according to its laws and regulations. —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
