Social website ‘Twitter’ suspends accounts of ‘extremist’ users

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 8: The social networking website ‘Twitter’ has suspended the accounts of two of the three individuals Shafi Al-Ajmi and Hajah Al-Ajmi and prevented them from using the Twitter after stopping their accounts entirely, reports Al-Rai daily. This came after the US authorities put them on the list of global terrorists.

The men were declared global terrorists by the US Deputy Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen for allegedly financing terrorists and providing weapons and fighters for extremists.

The US action is “targeting individuals who play a key role in external funding for terrorists in Syria and Iraq and providing foreign fighters.” Cohen said, through fundraising appeals via social media and through the use of financial networks Shafi Al-Ajmi, Hajaj Al-Ajmi and Abdul Rahman Al- Enezi were financing the terrorists, who are fighting in Syria and Iraq. He added: “We and our international partners, including Kuwait, need to move more quickly and effectively to disrupt terrorists financing these efforts.”

In another, unrelated development, the Sentences Renewal Judge has released Abdul Hakeem Al-Fadli from detention but ordered the continued detention Kuwaiti Ahmed Al-Deqbasi, reports Al-Qabas daily. The judge has also ordered the detention of political activist on bedoun issues Abdullah Attala for his participation in the related Jahra demonstrations which were organized in synchrony with the Sabah Al- Nasser events. Al-Fadli was detained on the background of events in Sabah Al-Nasser one month ago.

Meanwhile, Annahar daily said Al- Fadli was accused of assaulting Major- General Mahmoud Al-Dosari, Assistant Undersecretary for Special Security Affairs at the Ministry of Interior during the Sabah Al-Nasser demonstration.
