Forgery of citizenship and educational certificates now subject to indefinite prosecution

In a significant step against forgery of citizenship and educational certificates, it has been disclosed to Al-Qabas that these crimes won’t have a statute of limitations. While other fraud offenses typically expire after 15 years, forgery of citizenship and educational documents will remain prosecutable indefinitely due to their lasting effects. Perpetrators of such crimes often continue to receive benefits based on falsified documents, justifying the need for ongoing prosecution.

The distinction lies in whether the forged document remains in use; if it’s still being used deceptively, prosecution remains possible regardless of time elapsed.

To combat fake academic certificates, some government agencies are considering suspending allowances for individuals who refuse to authenticate their credentials. Penalties, including legal action, may be imposed gradually on those involved in educational certificate forgery.
