When will The Kuwait Ritz-Carlton receive its customers?

The question is directed to His Highness, our young Prime Minister, Sheikh Ahmed Al-Nawaf. We have received social media news that more than 600 personalities will be banned from traveling and more than KD150 billion of public and private money stolen from 2009 to 2021 will be recovered. These billions are the people’s private and public money.

Senior officials got involved with professional swindlers in looting the pockets of citizens in crooked ways, such as claiming that the senior official (Sheikh) likes to give you land just like his predecessors who gave pieces of land to ordinary citizens.

But this time, the swindler takes tens of thousands in cash – we repeat in cash – in the name of the royal member under the pretext that it is the fee for registering the land gift which disappeared. The young and old thieves did not stop from stealing public funds. They are not satisfied with what they have stolen, so they turned to the citizens and plundered their private money.

Public fund theft cases are greater than one could ever imagine, such as the Public Institution for Social Security (PIFSS), Army Fund, Ministry of Interior Hospitality Fund, Jaber Bridge and Malaysian Funds. There are dozens of examples of theft, such that their ‘heroes’ and children still enjoy buying expensive real estate properties, cars, food and drinks, because they obtained the money without a drop of sweat.

“Only their partners – citizens and foreigners – were imprisoned, while the real ‘sharks’ of thefts are still free. We witnessed how the PIFSS thief, who passed away recently, was allowed to leave prison eight years ago under the pretext of performing Umrah in the holy sites of Saudi Arabia.  No one saw him there, rather they saw him on the streets of London and its luxurious restaurants. His daughters are competing with Hollywood stars and fashionistas these days in terms of appearance.

Therefore, we, who witnessed Kuwait from the 1950s until the second decade of the 21st century, are hoping to see 600 thieves sitting in the most luxurious hotel in Kuwait – The Ritz-Carlton along Sour Street. We saw their peers in The Ritz-Carlton Riyadh as they were forced by King Salman bin Abdulaziz and his young son – Prince Mohammad, may God protect them, to pay for what they obtained unlawfully from public and private funds.

We are a country of democracy, constitution, laws and independent courts that say: “Justice is the basis of ruling.”

It is unreasonable for a citizen to be imprisoned and prosecuted for unlawfully seizing a handful of dinars, while the one who stole hundreds of millions is still free and having fun!

Therefore, we appeal to His Highness our Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad and his trusted Crown Prince, Sheikh Mishaal Al-Ahmad, to give His Highness the Prime Minister – their clean son – a white card (Carte Blanche) in order to fill The Ritz-Carlton Kuwait with the thieves of Kuwait to force them to pay for whatever they have stolen from the Kuwaiti people’s private and public money.
