KUWAIT CITY, Aug 13 Two expatriates were referred for deportation, as they were proven to have violated environment protection regulations when they dumped waste materials in areas not designated for this purpose, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting sources. Sources confirmed the Environment Public Authority (EPA) referred these erring expatriates to the Ministry of Interior for the necessary legal action.
In addition, Director of the Public Relations Department at EPA Sheikha Al-Ibrahim revealed the Inspection Department in Mubarak Al-Kabeer Governorate received a report that the contents of sewage tanks are being dumped in the green area in West Abu Fatira, opposite King Fahd Expressway. This has prompted EPA to seize the violating vehicles from the area’s sewage station and issued a citation in accordance with the law.
Meanwhile, official statistics revealed that 14 expatriates have been deported since the beginning of August for violating the Environmental Protection Law, reports Al-Qabas daily. The Environment Public Authority (EPA) released the statistical data recently, indicating that six of the deportees were arrested after throwing construction waste in areas not designated for this purpose — a violation of Article 32 of the law; while eight of them traded in chemicals without fulfilling the legal requirements.
