Workers at public cafe arrested for showing pornographic films: Some workers at a public cafÈ in Salmiya were arrested for showing pornographic films to their customers late at night, reports Al-Rai daily. An officer, who was clad in sportswear, was strolling in the area when he noticed many people entering the cafÈ through the side door. He got suspicious so he checked inside and he discovered the customers were watching pornographic film. He quickly notified the Criminal Detectives Department which dispatched a team of officers to the place, leading to the arrest of the workers.
During interrogation, the suspects confessed that they usually show such films to certain customers late at night since they no longer have access to satellite channels where they could watch similar films. When the owner of the cafÈ was summoned, he declared that he was not aware of such activities as he entrusted management of the place to other people. The officers left the owner off the hook while the arrested workers are still under investigation.
