No GCC poet prosecuted over ‘praise’ poem

KUWAIT: The Interior Ministry denied reports stating that Assistant Undersecretary for Nationality and Passports Major General Mazen Al-Jarrah sent a Gulf poet to court after he praised him in hope of receiving Kuwaiti nationality. If the rumor was correct, it is for sure not linked with the poetry of praise and may be related to forgery and other violations of the law, a ministry source said.

Forty people were arrested by residency detective in Jleeb Al-Shuyiukh during a campaign for violating residency law, and will be deported. The campaign lasted for four hours and also covered Shuwaikh garages.
