46 drug suspects arrested in 2 weeks


KUWAIT: The Drugs Control General Department recorded 38 cases of trading in drugs in two weeks, arresting 46 suspects in the process. It also impounded 2.358 kg of ice (meth), 1.889 kg of hashish, 1.730 kg of heroin, 864 gm of chemical (synthetic marijuana) and 10,177 illicit tablets during the period from May 1 to 15. The suspects were sent to concerned authorities.

The domestic help department carried out a security campaign that included several domestic help offices in Hawally governorate. Twenty-five workers were arrested for labor law violation and working for persons other than their sponsors. A citizen was arrested for making domestic helpers work on a daily basis in violation of the law. One helper who was deported as shown at the Interior Ministry’s database was found in the country again, which means that she must have managed to return back to the country through forgery. They were all sent to concerned authorities.

Municipality campaign
The Hawally municipality branch carried out a field campaign targeting co-ops, shops and restaurants to make sure their licenses are in order. The campaign resulted in closing two stores that were dealing in foodstuff before obtaining a license.
