KUWAIT CITY, Sept 12: On the basis of the principle “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure” and in a strategic pre-emptive strike to protect society, especially young people, from falling into the pits of white poisons, the Chairman of the Ethics Committee in the National Assembly MP Muhammad Hayef Al-Mutairi revealed that he, along with the Director General of the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET) Dr. Hassan Al- Fajjam, researched on generalizing the tests for drugs and psychotropic substances in some state institutions, especially educational ones.

In a press statement issued after the meeting on Monday, MP Hayef explained that his meeting with Dr. Al-Fajjam focused on the mechanisms for conducting periodic tests on students applying to study at PAAET, and considering it as one of the conditions for admission to its colleges.

The goal is to protect educational institutions from the spread of this scourge. The problem of the spread of drugs is one of the files assigned by the parliament’s Ethics Committee to study this phenomenon, its repercussions, and the proposed solutions to address its effects and limit its spread in society, particularly among students. He added, “Statistics issued by judicial authorities from time to time indicate that drugs are the common denominator in most crimes”.

MP Al-Hayef stressed the importance of cooperation of all state ministries, especially Education, Health, Awqaf, and Communication, in combating the phenomenon, along with the strenuous efforts exerted by the security services to confront this scourge and its promoters. According to informed security sources, this approach comes in line with the fact that they had confirmed more than once that the Ministry of Interior does not clap alone. It is playing its role in controlling drugs, but confronting this imminent danger requires an integrated plan with the participation of all state agencies. Kuwait has become targeted by a mafia gang that smuggles and peddles narcotics more than ever before. By Abdul Rahman Al-Shammari Al-Seyassah Staff
