The night of Jleeb state cleansing

GhanimA major security campaign in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh resulted in the arrest of 3,338 violators: 1,248 without IDs, 305 residency violators, 135 wanted debtors, 63 on arrest orders, 123 prostitutes, 299 absconders, 16 for drugs offenses, 480 with expired residency, 23 wanted on felony and misdemeanor cases, 472 over detained affairs and deportation of 163 labor law violators. Five local liquor factories were busted and 38 shops were sealed for operating without a commercial license, reported Al-Anbaa on December 24.

A magnificent awaking by the Interior Ministry, during which it hit Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, one of the crime dens in the country and the refuge of fugitives away from the law. This huge cache was in one day only, so what should we expect if the interior ministry surrounded the area for days and weeks and cleansed it from immorality and criminal elements that are living in its basements?!

Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh has become a symbol of chaos in the country and a sign of violating the law, as liquor plants, tens of unlicensed stores, absconders and secret unethical dens all mushroomed over several decades in this dark spot. It is also a scandal for residency traders who have no fear from their Lord in the country, people and the poor. If the interior ministry succeeds in its latest campaign, it is required to make such campaigns as a method and continuous action in all Kuwait governorates and cleanse other suspected areas such as Hasawi, Bneid Al-Gar and others.

I am sure that the interior ministry’s security men are able to perform this mission efficiently and successfully if they receive support and the necessary legal authorization. Kuwait needs its men to keep their continuous work in all fields and cleanse it from administrative and moral corruption that made it stumble in its march. If the men of this country do not carry out this mission sincerely, then no one will take it over following them. Thanks to the interior ministry for the success of this mission and we ask you to continue your hard work. – Translated by Kuwait Times from Al-Qabas
