campaign in Shuwaikh Industrial Area
180 expats on fake visit visas to be deported; 31 expats arrested in Hawally 40 vehicles, bikes seized, 200 citations issued in traffic raids

 KUWAIT CITY, Jan 21: The General Security Immigration Department has referred 180 expatriates, mostly Egyptians to the deportation centre for entering the country on suspicious commercial visa, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. Hundreds of expatriates who came to the country on visit visas are now banned from travel and an arrest warrant has been issued against them. These persons were sponsored by people who have no right to recruit visitors. Some of the arrested expatriates have admitted to paying money for the visa.

31 expats arrested: The Hawalli police during a surprise crackdown in various areas in the governorate have arrested 31 expatriates for violating labor laws, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. They were caught working for others rather than their sponsors. They have been referred to the concerned authorities.

Shuwaikh Industrial area traffic campaign: Officers of Capital Traffic Department issued 200 citations against various traffic violations, and seized 30 vehicles and 10 motorbikes during a traffic campaign launched in Shuwaikh Industrial Area based on instructions from the Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major General Abdul Fattah Al-Ali. According to security sources, the officers set up security checkpoints in various locations within Shuwaikh Industrial Area and checked the vehicles, which resulted in the issuance of 200 citations against various traffic violations. They also seized 30 vehicles that were found unfit to be driven on the roads and 10 motorbikes that were being ridden without drivers’ license, and the officers referred them to the garage of seized vehicles. Sources added that the traffic officers will continue such surprise campaigns throughout the country to control traffic violations. Meanwhile, it was noted during the campaigns that a traffic officer was not wearing the official attire and was wearing sandals instead of the official boots while carrying out his duty. It is ironic that he was issuing citations to those who violated the rules while he was clearly violating the law. Meanwhile, the Jahra traffic police during a crackdown on traffic law violators are said to have issued 240 citations against motorists in Subbiya for speeding and impounded 15 vehicles for various reasons, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily
