Kuwait Times - - Local - By Hanan Al-Saadoun

KUWAIT: Act­ing Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the In­te­rior Min­istry’s Re­la­tions and Se­cu­rity In­for­ma­tion Brig Tawheed Al-Kan­dari said the higher lead­er­ship ded­i­cates all ef­forts against drugs abuse. He said Deputy Premier and In­te­rior Min­is­ter Sheikh Khaled Al-Jar­rah Al-Sabah places the is­sue on top of his pri­or­i­ties for the pro­tec­tion of so­ci­ety mem­bers. He said a co­or­di­nated meet­ing of the na­tional cam­paign for the preven­tion of drugs that was chaired by In­te­rior Min­istry Un­der­sec­re­tary Mah­moud Al-Dousary is an im­por­tant step. He said an aware­ness plan for all so­ci­ety groups is im­ple­mented all year long and up­dated reg­u­larly in co­or­di­na­tion with all state au­thor­i­ties and NGOs.

Kan­dari said the me­dia in­for­ma­tion depart­ment re­lies in its strat­egy and me­dia plans on preven­tion and so­cial aware­ness about the dan­gers of drugs and its health and psy­cho­log­i­cal ef­fects, as well as so­cial and se­cu­rity reper­cus­sions on se­cu­rity, le­gal and preven­tion as­pects. He said the fam­ily should have an ef­fec­tive role in the com­pre­hen­sive fight against drugs be­cause it is the first line of de­fense; ef­forts to fight drugs may be lack­ing and may fail if the fam­ily is not one of the pil­lars of such ef­forts.

En­croach­ments Mubarak Al-Kabeer mu­nic­i­pal in­spec­tors toured var­i­ous ar­eas of the gov­er­norate to re­move en­croach­ments on state prop­erty. Head of the depart­ment Ma­jid Al-Mu­tairi said the tours re­sulted in the re­moval of vi­o­la­tions over an area of 4,400 sq m.
