Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

KUWAIT: Six Egyp­tian ex­pats have been ar­rested for post­ing of­fend­ing re­marks about Kuwait and Kuwaitis via their per­sonal ac­counts on so­cial net­work me­dia, the Min­istry of In­te­rior said yes­ter­day. Se­cu­rity forces have ar­rested Ah­mad Al-Sayed Farah, Ah­mad Jaber Ab­dul­salam, Mo­ham­mad Faraj Salim, Tariq Ab­dul­hameed Ab­dul­ha­keem, Mo­ham­mad Obaid Al-Esharri and Ab­dul­rah­man Mo­ham­mad Ah­mad, the Min­istry’s Se­cu­rity Me­dia Depart­ment said in a state­ment.

The sus­pects have posted en­tic­ing mes­sages di­rected to the Egyp­tian com­mu­nity in the coun­try - en­cour­ag­ing them to go on strike, hate and called for re­venge for a re­cent vi­o­lent scuf­fle in­ci­dent be­tween Egyp­tian res­i­dents and Kuwaiti cit­i­zens in Hawally Gov­er­norate, said the state­ment. Their act is a clear vi­o­la­tion of the Kuwait law, pub­lic or­der of­fence, and breach of se­cu­rity in ad­di­tion to en­dan­ger­ing the lives of cit­i­zens and res­i­dents, the min­istry af­firmed.

They will be re­ferred to com­pe­tent in­ves­ti­ga­tion agen­cies, the state­ment noted, re­it­er­at­ing the Min­istry’s de­ter­mi­na­tion and con­tin­ued ef­forts to pre­vent any mis­con­duct that would dis­rupt Kuwait’s pub­lic se­cu­rity. The Min­istry also warned of the abuse and mis­use of so­cial net­work me­dia, af­firm­ing ev­ery­body’s equal­ity be­fore the law. — KUNA
