Travel ban issued against 200,000 Kuwaitis and expatriates

The Sentences Enforcement Department and the Ministry of Justice and Interior have issued arrest warrants against two hundred thousand Kuwaitis and expatriates for failure to pay debts, according to a local daily.  As a consequence, a travel ban has been issued against these suspects.

According to sources familiar with the issue, creditors – banks and companies – have filed complaints of financial claims against these people who have failed to pay the installments, which vary between loans and financial benefits, compelling the department to issue the arrest warrants and put their names on the travel ban list.

The sources pointed out of the 200,000 there are about 29,000 Kuwaiti women out of a total 70,000 Kuwaitis while the number of expatriates is about 30,000.

The head of the Takaful Society Musaed Mandani has confirmed that the debt of about 29,000 Kuwaiti females ranges between 1,000 and 10,000 dinars.

A campaign to drop loans of Kuwaitis on the various social networking sites has completed its 52nd day in conjunction with parliamentary proposals to consider the case of citizens debt.
