.The acting PM and Minister of Interior (MoI), Sheikh Mohammed Al-Khaled Al-Sabah has expressed his appreciation for the efforts exerted by Hawally detectives and the criminal investigators in unfolding the mystery behind the Marina Mall murder and the arrests they made. MoI’s security media department announced that Hawally detectives have identified the suspects – two Bedoons (stateless citizens) and a Kuwaiti man.

They are Saad Thuwaini Kathem (Bedoon), Abdullah Mubarak Mohsen (Bedoon) and Saad Ali Faraj (Kuwaiti).The brutal murder has provoked angry reactions from several MPs who condemned what they described as a ‘loose security’. In this regard, MP Sa’doun Hammad has urged the Interior Minister to have a stricter grip on security in order to prevent such ‘terrifying murders’ occasionally taking place in Kuwait’s shopping malls. “Once more, the society is shocked by a horrific murder in a shopping mall.

The Interior Minister, who is known for his decisiveness, should have a stricter security grip”, he urged.MP Khalil Al-Saleh said that the Marina Mall murder indicates government’s bad performance and called for more serious actions to be taken to prevent such incidents. MP Hamdan Al-Azmi urged the government to boost security in shopping malls and public places.
