KUWAIT CITY, April 11: The concerned courts recently imposed fines ranging from KD1,000 to KD5,000 on 500 citizens for retweeting or reposting Twitter and other social media posts proven to have violated the law, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting a source from the legal sector.

The source pointed out that in the past, several individuals filed cases against Twitter or other social media users whose posts offended their dignity or published incorrect information about them. However, it has been observed that plaintiffs are now demanding for the punishment of those retweeting the posts in question.

The source revealed that a court recently ordered people behind tweets deemed offensive to a citizen to pay him KD5 million compensation, including those who retweeted or reposted the offensive post. The source added that most of those who were fined are young — some are university students and teenagers who were surprised by the court ruling against them because of a post they retweeted a long time ago.
