Kuwait rights council checks on detained illegal residents

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 4, (KUNA): A delegation of the National Diwan for Human Rights has visited the public prison inspecting conditions of illegal resident detainees.

Yousef Al-Sagr, a board member, said in a statement on Saturday that the delegation met the detainees for four hours on Thursday. They examined their conditions, inquired about their interrogations and listened to the inmates’ remarks.

They met the detainees individually, he said, indicating that reports would be filed to the competent authorities of the state in this respect, and called for a permanent solution to this issue.

The Kuwaiti Government has affirmed necessity of cooperation between the executive and legislative authorities to find a “fundamental and decisive” solution to the problem of illegal residents. National Assembly (Parliament) Speaker Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim has recently affirmed coordination with the government to find such a settlement during summer.
