Kuwait Company Lobbying Washington Hard To Get Its Convicted Embezzlers Out Of Kuwait

A Kuwaiti company and an affiliated investment fund are spending millions of dollars on a massive Washington lobbying effort.

In fact, KGL Investment Company and the Port Fund spent $2.5 million on lobbying in the first quarter of the year, which is almost as much as American companies like AT&T and Verizon spent in the same period.

According to Politico, disclosure filings reveal the lobbyists are trying to secure the release of an executive who’s imprisoned in Kuwait.
