Policeman violates ‘Arab Times’ press

KUWAIT CITY, April 16: A uniformed police officer sneaked into the Arab Times and Al-Seyassah office from the back gate on April 16 early morning. He threatened and harassed press employees and demanded them to produce their identity cards, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

The police officer had parked his patrol vehicle 7767 behind the newspaper building and started harassing the employees to the extent of mocking them while demanding them for their identity cards.

He also demanded the halt of the operations of the printing press, which delayed the publication and distribution of Arab Times and Al- Seyassah newspapers for hours.

He also violated the law when he demanded the press employees to leave the premises after checking their Civil IDs.

He was unconcerned about the fact that his actions were in violation of the laws and regulations that he was supposed to uphold as a police officer.

When an employee told the officer that he was violating regulations governing the security sector of the country by entering and raiding the newspaper premises without authorization from the Public Prosecution, the officer locked the employee in the patrol vehicle.

He eventually released the locked employee after several hours and left the premises.

What were the intentions and motives of this police officer in committing such outrageous violation of law inside the Arab Times and Al-Seyassah press building?

Did he act alone or on orders of a higher authority?

We request Minister of Interior Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khalid, Undersecretary of Ministry of Interior Lt General Sulaiman Al-Fahad and other concerned authorities to look into this preposterous and outrageous violation of laws and regulations governing the police force, and identify those who are responsible and their motives.
