KUWAIT CITY, Feb 16: The Ministry of Interior has warned citizens and expats against remitting money to people who have no relations with them or entities outside Kuwait. This procedure is considered illegal and will hold people accountable who are doing so.

This measure comes within the framework of Kuwait’s fight against money laundering issue, funding of terror activities, as well as to curb extortion, ebegging, illegal charity funding. 

In a statement, the ministry stated that sending money transfers through electronic or banking means to an unreliable party or person with whom you have no knowledge brings you into the circle of criminal suspicions and may expose the person to legal accountability.
