Amir condemns violations of law, order INTERIOR MINISTRY VOWS TO ARREST ALL LAW VIOLATORS

 KUWAIT CITY, July 6: His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al- Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah stressed Sunday that all people must follow the law in order to protect the state’s constitutional institutions against any violations.

His Highness also said that citizens are not allowed to violate the judicial authority, condemning the attack on the country’s judiciary. Moreover, His Highness noted that the Kuwaiti law serves justice for all members of society, grants people their rights and safeguard the country’s security. His Highness’ statement came during the reception of His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al- Jaber Al-Sabah and His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah on Sunday, who provided His Highness with reports on incidents of law violations that occured in the past two days.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Interior cautioned that it would decisively face all unlicensed rallies and marches in line with legal measures with a view to maintaining national security and stability. The ministry said in a statement it commits to constitutional and legal constants which govern the general order in the country and match Islamic Sharia’ and the Kuwaiti people’s ethics. It warned that it would confront all acts of violence, rioting, burning, ransacking and assault on policemen or state and private facilities and properties.

Regrettably, such acts are being committed regardless of appeals and calls for tranquility and reasoning just of keenness on the country’s national interests, it said. The Ministry urged all people to exercise proper conduct. It asked parents of young people who took part in such acts to clarify to them the danger of such acts on them and the whole society.

The ministry said in a release earlier in the day that in spite of repeated warnings, a group of people held illegal rallies at Sabah Al-Nasser suburb on Sunday evening, during which some violent acts and riots happened. The protesters blocked traffic, burnt dustbins and assaulted security forces and attacked public and private properties, it lamented.

The Ministry reiterated its commitment to bring all those involved in the violation of law to justice in order to safeguard Kuwait’s security. MP Abdullah Al-Mayouf has expressed disapproval over demonstrations and riots that the country has been witnessing in the last few days.

Al-Mayouf pointed out such actions cannot be justified even if the purpose is to voice objection to Musallam Al- Barrak’s detention. He stressed the people behind these demonstrations are not above the law which will be enforced on everyone.

He wondered why these people keep on instigating disorder and anarchy on the streets of Kuwait, considering Al-Barrak’s case is still on the table of discussion and the verdict has yet to be announced. He said if there is any form of negligence in the judicial verdict, then these demonstrations would have been understandable. He asked, “Investigations are still ongoing so there is no way for anyone to know who is wrong at the moment?”

Meanwhile, MP Mansour Al-Thafiri lauded approval of the proposed end-of-service (indemnity) for Kuwaiti employees in the public and private sectors. He considers this a remarkable achievement as it grants equal privileges to all national workers in both sectors. He pointed out everyone is aware of the numerous constructive laws passed in the last parliamentary term, affirming the Assembly will have more achievements in the next term. The MP added that like the end-of-service bill, the children’s allowance, unification of salary scale and other important bills will be tackled with the same idea of justice and equality to satisfy all Kuwaitis
