KUWAIT CITY, Aug 15: A young couple — a Kuwaiti man and his girlfriend from an unidentified Gulf state — is scheduled to appear before the Public Prosecution today, Sunday, after they face charges of misusing the phone and violating public decency, reports Al-Anba daily. The daily added, the couple was arrested by personnel from the criminal security sector at dawn on Friday, after the young man, a policeman working for the General Administration of Criminal Investigation and who has been suspended from work, published a dance clip Thursday on ‘Snapchat’ for public viewing, not just his followers or friends. During interrogation the suspect has admitted to posting the clip and claimed he did not intend to offend public modesty.

A security source said as soon as the dance clip was posted, instructions were issued to arrest the publisher of the clip. The source added the suspect and his place of residence were identified in Rumaithiya and was subsequently picked from his home at dawn on Friday. When confronted with the clip, he admitted it was him and said the other person in the clip is his girlfriend from a Gulf country who came to Kuwait two days ago and was living in a hotel from where she was taken into detention. The source suggested that traffic violations would be issued against the young man, including recklessness and raising the volume of the radio, stressing the need to observe public morals, customs and traditions, and not to deviate from them in an inappropriate manner.
