Kuwait: Last week, when a Kuwaiti citizen was found dead 25 years ago in official documents, he escaped unconscious.
According to the popular Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai, the man named Abdul Mohsen Al-Aidi has been legally responsible for his wife’s affairs since 1992 under the General Power of Attorney.
Due to his wife’s illness and infirmity, he went to Al-Qareen Service Center a few weeks ago on a private mission to get the power of attorney certified by the Law Ministry to find out if it is still acceptable today.
The female officer present there took a copy of the power of attorney from him and he waited outside.
After a long wait, the woman asked Abdul Mohsin for her official ID card. She kept looking at his signature and face from official papers and at the same time her surprise increased.
“Sir! Do you believe that you are Abdul Mohsin? ”The female official asked. When she said he was Abdul Mohsin, the woman said he had died 25 years ago, according to official Kuwaiti government records.
Abdul Mohsin fainted at the revelation and fell to the ground. “If I’m dead, how can I live in front of you?” He asked the female officer.
Shortly afterwards, Abdul Mohsin regained his composure and told the female official that the Kuwaiti Institute for Public Information had issued him an official certificate four months earlier.
However, his whole argument was in vain because he was legally dead and the power of attorney made in his name had also become ineffective.
Finally, Abdul Mohsin petitioned the Ministry of Justice to “revive” him, as in his “current status” neither the power of attorney nor his role in the distribution of inheritance is possible. ۔
