Kuwait warns of crackdown on ‘wild’ New Year parties
December 21, 2015, 5:17 pm

Kuwaiti authorities have warned of crack down on wild and illegal celebrations of the New Year. A zero-tolerance policy would be applied towards any abuses or violation of the law while holding parties to usher in the New Year, security sources said.

Any tent that is used for mixed-gender parties or to engage in illegal activities would be taken down, according to a plan drafted by the security authorities with the support of the Municipality of Kuwait, Kuwaiti daily Al Anba reported on Monday.

Patrols will be deployed in several areas and campaigns will be conducted in large hotels and restaurants where celebrations are held.

Any instance of noise pollution or public disturbance will be handled swiftly, the sources added. All cafés and assembly areas will be under close monitoring to ensure public order is respected and no disturbance are allowed.

The sources added that there would be strict measures to ensure the full application of the law in suspicious places and that the people caught in compromising situations would be referred to the competent authorities.

Those who are held in an “abnormal” state after midnight will be also face justice. Kuwait has regularly warned it would deport foreigners caught disrupting public order.
