KUWAIT CITY, Mar 24: Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have joined India and the Philippines by refusing to receive their expelled nationals from Kuwait.
reports Al Rai. Sources said that the Ministry of Interior has examined medically all deportees and making sure that they are free from corona virus and has also implemented fingerprinting and ticket reservations has been done for all deportees of Indian, Filipino, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi nationalities.
But despite of these measures their countries have refused to receive them justifying absence of a “PCR” certificate from Kuwait confirming their safety which created an obstacle for Ministry of Interior to deport back although the procedures were completed.
The only matter stands now is to allow their countries to open their airspace for Kuwait aircraft so that the expelled violators can be deported.
The source stated that the concerned authorities worked to communicate with the embassies of the expatriates to be deported and were addressed several times but did not receive any response and did not find any cooperation from them. The Embassies stated that they do not have the decision which requires the intervention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in coordination with the foreign ministries of those countries to allow to receive its citizens whose presence is putting pressure on prisons and the security system.
