Tight se­cu­rity must have pre­vented con­victs’ es­cape

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Se­cu­rity au­thor­i­ties pro­tect­ing the air, land and mar­itime bor­ders pos­sess ex­ten­sive ca­pa­bil­i­ties to de­tect any per­son who at­tempts to en­ter or leave the coun­try, in­formed se­cu­rity sources said. The con­victs wanted in the so-called ‘Ab­dali Cell’ case have not es­caped from the coun­try, they added, and also ex­pressed con­fi­dence that on­go­ing su­per­vi­sion, check­points and in­spec­tions cam­paigns around the coun­try will even­tu­ally lead to their ar­rest. The ma­rine radar sys­tem at the pos­ses­sion of Kuwait Coast Guards is ca­pa­ble of de­tect­ing any in­fil­tra­tors or peo­ple who at­tempt to es­cape out of the coun­try, the sources noted, adding that re­ports spec­u­lat­ing that the sus­pects man­aged to flee the coun­try via sea are false “be­cause Coast Guard boats spread across the seashores mon­i­tor any move­ment, and it is very dif­fi­cult to de­feat this sys­tem.” The sources said that the fugi­tives must be hid­ing in places in­side Kuwait that are be­ing searched for by au­thor­i­ties.
