Abu Dhabi: Riyadh Police have arrested a Saudi man and four violators of the residency rules, including two Yemenis, a Sudanese and a Syrian, for allegedly forging medical reports and sick leaves, police said.

Major Khaled Al Kreidis, spokesman for the Riyadh police, said the four men committed a number of crimes, such as forging medical reports and sick leaves, certified with fake stamps and attributed to medical centers and government hospitals.

The men also reportedly promoted these forged documents on social media platforms with the aim of selling them, Major Al Kreidis said. The police raided a residential unit in the west of Riyadh, where the men allegedly carried out their crimes.

A number of forged medical reports, printed materials of government agencies, nine fake stamps, and a computer device containing forged medical reports, were seized, police said. The men were remanded in custody and moved to the Public Prosecution for further questioning and trial, police said.
