 MoI eye on beggars, donations

Interior Ministry’s Security Information Department congratulates Kuwaitis and expatriates on the advent of Ramadan and called for the general public to abide by customs and traditions during the period.

The ministry stressed need to respect the people who will be fasting by not eating or drinking in their presence, seeing that the act violates Kuwaiti laws and it’s punishable by a month’s imprisonment or fines not exceeding KD 100 or both punishments.

The sector assured that all necessary security steps have been taken to protect life and property during the month of fasting, with security teams on alert to control activities in all areas across the governorates, and to deal with traffic congestion at commercial complexes, beaches and parks.

Also, relevant legal measures are in place to control begging in Ramadan and those who collect donations during the period, noting that donations should be given to the appropriate authorities recommended by government. The Security Information Department appeals to the general public to abide by the country’s rules and regulations and wishes the people prosperity in the holy month.
