KUWAIT CITY, April 17: Ministry of Interior has requested Ministry of Commerce and Industry to tighten its supervision on tailor shops and impose maximum punishment on those who stitch military clothes for people who do not carry military IDs or official letters from their workplaces, reports Al-Rai daily quoting informed sources.
They explained that the instructions stipulate the need to check the military ID of those wishing for stitched military clothes or to purchase military items, provided that the shops should stitch clothes only after the person produces a letter from his workplace, presents his ID card and records his data.
The sources said Ministry of Commerce and Industry has started tightening control on this market periodically to monitor the extent to which they comply by regulations. They stressed that the main violation in this regard is stitching military uniforms with ranks or the name of the department where the person works.
The sources affirmed that warnings will initially be issued to shops that stitch military clothes without permission, followed by administrative or full closure of the shop, and referral to Public Prosecution in case of repetition of the violation.
