In­struc­tions were made yes­ter­day to halt a pre­vi­ous de­ci­sion ban­ning de­part­ing pas­sen­gers through land bor­ders from re­turn­ing to Kuwait within eight hours of de­par­ture. Se­cu­rity sources noted that the ban was placed by the for­mer bor­ders di­rec­tor three months ear­lier and that bor­der sys­tems had been ac­cord­ingly pro­grammed. The sources added that a num­ber of trav­ellers who go to Khafji in Saudi Ara­bia on short busi­ness trips and re­turn be­fore eight hours had ex­pressed dis­sat­is­fac­tion with the de­ci­sion. Ac­cord­ingly, the land bor­der ex­its man­ager bri­gadier Ayad Al-Had­dad or­dered ex­empt­ing them un­til the block is fully re­moved from the Min­istry of In­te­rior’s sys­tems.
