KUWAIT CITY, May 1: According to informed security sources, the number of expatriates in violation of the residency law has decreased by about 40,000 from 160,000 to about 120,000 within one year, due to the intensive security campaigns carried out by various sectors of the Ministry of Interior, reports Al-Rai daily. The sources explained that this comes within the framework of the continuous efforts to implement the plan to amend the demographics and prosecute violators of the residency and marginal employment law. Based on instructions from the First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Interior and Acting Minister of Defense Sheikh Talal Al-Khalid, and the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior Lieutenant General Anwar Al-Barjas, campaigns in various governorates of the country were intensified to preserve security, enhance monitoring and contain all violators. The instructions from the minister emphasized the need to continue with the intensive security campaigns, and not to be complacent in taking necessary action for dealing with the violators.

Special teams have been formed to work around the clock in four shifts. They include police officers from the residency and manpower investigations, with the support of the other security sectors to launch continuous campaigns. The continuous campaigns resulted in the deportation of about 40,000 violators of the residency law, bringing the numbers down from 160,000 to 120,000 within a year. This is considered a real achievement that reflects the serious and resolute approach to monitor suspicious places where violating workers are present.

The first quarter of this year (from January 1, 2023 to April 28, 2023) witnessed the deportation of about 11,000 violators of the residency law – men and women of different nationalities. The sources indicated that the campaigns in the next few days will include desert areas, livestock pens, farms and chalets, affirming that violators will be seized and deported according to the legal procedures followed. They stressed that the Ministry of Interior will continue to pursue violators and prevent marginal workers from working, as well as conduct investigations about those who shelter violators and refer them to the competent authorities.
