MoI tightens guard around Central Jail ‘Shoot on sight’ orders if police threatened

 KUWAIT CITY, July 7: The Interior Ministry has called for strengthening security measures around guards towers on the perimeter of the Central Prison, reports Al-Shahed daily. The Ministry has also put the guards on full alert after one of the participants in the demonstration hurled a Molotov cocktail at the wall of the Central Prison in Sabah Al-Nasser.

According to security sources, following the incident the Interior Ministry held an emergency meeting because throwing Molotov cocktail at security forces sets a dangerous precedent and is a threat to securitymen and endangers the lives of passers-by — citizens and residents.

The same sources said the Interior Ministry had issued orders to all security personnel to monitor the situation during demonstrations and arrest anyone who may use hazardous substance. The Ministry had also given orders to ‘shoot on sight’ demonstrators involved in endangering the lives of securitymen or using violence.
