HRW says Kuwait govt not violated any human rights Info to launch probe into cause of ‘technical hitch’

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 18: Human Rights Watch says the Kuwaiti government has not violated any human rights as alleged by the nullified majority bloc and described the movement led by the latter as ‘misled’, reports a local daily.

This report of Human Rights Watch was published in its website after the former MPs threatened to file a complaint with the group.

In the report, it was specified that the group did not detect any violation of human rights or democracy by the Kuwaiti government, affirming that there are no obstacles to freedom and democracy in Kuwait and freedom to express opinion is possible either through the parliament or through the free mass media.

Meanwhile, Ministry of Information opened an intensive investigation to identify the cause of technical hitch experienced during live coverage of the inaugural parliamentary session Sunday, reports Al-Jarida daily quoting reliable sources as saying.

Sources added investigators will endeavor to identify a person who criticized the parliament when the technical fault was observed, affirming the critic and employees responsible for the fault will be referred for investigation, and necessary administrative measures will be taken against them if proven the fault was deliberate or due to negligence.

They reiterated that Kuwait TV provided all technical and human resources to air the important event efficiently.
