No Capital Hill notice on Magnitsky International Law

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid

KUWAIT CITY, July 24: Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al-Khalid has said that the ministry has not received any complaint from the US Congress against the government of Kuwait or any Kuwaiti, reports Al-Jarida daily.

In response to a parliamentary query by MP Abdullah Al-Kandari the minister said the ministry is entrusted with following up and protecting the interests of Kuwait and its citizens abroad and pointed out that it did not receive anything in this regard.

MP Al-Kandari had asked the foreign minister about a recent media report about ‘a person’ filing a complaint against the State of Kuwait before the US Congress, calling for the implementation of the Magnitsky International Law against Kuwait if one of the accused and wanted by the Kuwaiti judiciary is not released.

In a subsequent statement, Al-Kandari denounced what he described “the State Department’s silence” about the continued statements by Neil Bush, recently published by the Washington Times, about the threat to apply the law against Kuwait if the Russian accused Marsha Lazareva was not released.
