Controversy over using taser on teacher

Ministry denies report on social media

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 29: Although the Ministry of Interior has denied that an assistant general manager of a school in Jahra used taser at a teacher in the same school, Director of Jahra Educational District Walid Al-Ghaith said the Legal Affairs Department has yet to finish the investigation; adding two employees in the school testified that the assistant general manager used taser while the general manager of the school stressed he did not witness the incident.

Al-Ghaith disclosed the teacher is keen on filing a complaint at the police station. He pointed out that any wrongful act committed by an individual in the educational sector is a reflection of himself, not the entire sector. He added the administration will impose the relevant penalty once the investigation is completed and after listening to the testimonies of witnesses.

Meanwhile, earlier the General Department of Public Relations and Security Media of Ministry of Interior denied the report circulating on social media concerning the use of taser by the deputy general manager of a school in Jahra area against a teacher of that school, causing the latter to lose consciousness.

In a press statement issued by Ministry of Interior, the department affirmed that the Operations Room of the ministry did not receive any calls about such an incident, and no lawsuits have been filed in this regard. It explained that investigations were held concerning this issue, which revealed that a quarrel had erupted between the deputy general manager of the school in Jahra area and a teacher but no tasers were used in that quarrel.

The dispute was resolved in a friendly manner. The General Department of Public Relations and Security Media urged all users of social media to confirm the accuracy of any information before sharing and circulating them.
