Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major General Abdul Fattah Al-Ali affirmed the legality in the deportation of expatriates who committed serious traffic violations, explaining that many countries including the United States of America deport expatriates who commit such violations.

During an open meeting that was held when a delegation from the Kuwait Journalists Association visited his office in the ministry on Monday morning, Major General Al-Ali bid all human rights societies that criticized the General Traffic Department (GTD), to look into the violations of human rights in their countries first before accusing Kuwait of violating human rights.

He said the department had thoroughly studied the traffic problem in the country and arrived at appropriate solutions. He explained that one of the ways they studied the traffic situation was by distributing approximately 20 officers to about seven roundabouts for the purpose, revealing that 70 percent expatriates and 30 percent Kuwaiti citizens passed through those roundabouts during the study.

He further revealed that they had registered citations against several violations such as domestic drivers using their sponsors’ vehicles for illegal taxiing, people driving without drivers’ license, etc, adding that GTD decided to take strict action against such illegal activities.
The meeting concluded after the delegation thanked Al-Ali for his time and presented him with a plaque.

Traffic crackdown on Gulf Road: Hawally traffic officers issued 200 traffic citations and seized eight vehicles during a traffic campaign that was launched on Arabian Gulf Street near Al-Shaab area.
According to security sources, the officers launched the campaign after receiving directives from Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs at the Ministry of Interior Major General Abdul Fattah Al-Ali.
They explained that a number of students generally drive vehicles without drivers’ license during this period every year after appearing for their examinations.
They revealed that the citations issued during the campaign were for traffic violations such as breach of public security, expired vehicle insurance, etc.

30 expats nabbed: Ahmadi securitymen arrested 30 expatriates during security campaigns that they launched in Fahaheel, Mahboula, Abu Halifa and Coastal Street yesterday.

Sources revealed that three expatriates had absconding cases filed against them while 25 did not have their identification documents. They were referred to the concerned authorities for necessary legal action against them.

Ahmadi Security Directorate affirmed the continuation of such campaigns to arrest the violators of law and maintain the security of the governorate.
