KUWAIT, Oct 31 : The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry warned on Saturday that it would take the appropriate legal action to deter any bid to sell barcodes for consular services and to monitor and thwart wrongdoings.
The warning came in response to recent social media reports that some people were involved in selling the barcodes of services provided by the ministry’s consular department, according to a ministry statement.
The ministry is closely monitoring the consular department’s services, and is keen on regulating and streamlining them only to serve its customers, Assistant Foreign Minister for Consular Affairs and Minister Plenipotentiary Samie Al-Hamad was quoted as saying in the statement.
He added that the ministry had monitored some people while trying to sell barcodes, underlining that “legal action was taken against them”.
Cautioning against such wrongdoings, the official vowed that the ministry would take all appropriate measures to preclude such malpractices.(KUNA)
