Thousands of mourners lay the body of late Al-Shalahi to rest

KUWAIT CITY, May 1: Kuwaiti businessman Mohammad Metab Al-Shalahi was Monday laid to rest at the Sulaibikhat Graveyard. Thousands of mourners attended the burial procession and offered their condolences to the family of late Al-Shalahi. Al-Shalahi and his business partner Saeed Karimian, who is an exiled Iranian opposition member, were killed by a masked man in the upscale Maslak neighborhood of north Istanbul on Saturday night.

The Kuwaiti consul in Istanbul Mohammad Al-Mohammad affirmed that the Kuwaiti Consulate has been closely coordinating with the concerned Turkish authority to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident, and followup the investigations. He said the consulate had worked round the clock to ensure Al-Shalahi’s body was returned back to Kuwait as soon as possible for burial.

Al-Mohammad indicated about a parliamentary demand for Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the concerned authorities concerning the need for disclosing the details related to the assassination of Al-Shalahi, which is being considered as a “political crime”.
