Panel no to airport medical checks – Entry ban deemed unconstitutional

KUWAIT CITY, Nov 9: The Legislative and Legal Affairs Committee in the Parliament on Thursday rejected a proposal requiring foreigners to undergo medical examination upon arrival at Kuwait International Airport because it interferes with their personal life, it is not limited to a certain category, and the State is not ready for such measures.

Committee Chairman MP Al-Humaidi Al-Subaie disclosed that they also rejected the proposal to ban anyone found guilty of offending God, HH the Amir, wives and companion of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) from entering the country as it violates Constitution and it does not include other Prophets and Messengers — Peace Be Upon Them.

Meanwhile, MP Riyadh Al-Adsani asserted the Future Generations Fund balance is above excellent; stressing Kuwait’s economy is good while denying the allegation that the country is on the verge of economic downfall.

A few days ago, various media outlets published reports on the supposed loss of a large sum of money from the sovereign fund of the State, but the official authorities denied it in a public statement. In another development, MP Abdul-Kareem Al-Kandari has presented a bill to regulate financing of electoral campaigns for members of the National Assembly.

He explained that if this bill is approved, it will stop excessive spending on electoral campaigns, widen the scope of transparency in the electoral process and ensure equal opportunities for all candidates. Moreover, MP Jamaan Al- Harbash has forwarded queries to acting Minister of Commerce and Industry Khalid Al-Roudhan about the shares of Zain Telecommunications Company.
