Residency law violations, security and regulation violations led to the arrest of more than 800 individuals, many are expatriates over the past few weeks that covered Al-Rai, Abu Halifa, Fahaheel, Jleed Al-Shuyoukh, Murghab, near Shuwaikh and the Friday Market area.
The wide scale campaign was possible through the Ministry of Interior as well as the support of citizens and legal residents in providing proper information, tracking down and eventually, arrest of offenders. The department’s priority is to establish public awareness about the laws, rules and regulations in Kuwait and the responsibility of every individual, citizen or expatriate alike about their necessary roles in society.
Arrested individuals are expected to answer questions and inquiries from the authorities. By maintaining public order and compliance of Kuwait laws, it is expected that in due time, all will be able to live harmoniously amongst each other, feel secured and have peace of mind against bad habits and crimes.
