Assistant Undersecretary for Public Security Affairs at the Ministry of the Interior, Major-General Abdulfattah Al-Ali announced the public security sector has until now evicted bachelors from 54 homes in Kuwaiti residential areas and shut down at least 60 groceries which were operating in these areas, reports Al-Anba daily.
Al-Ali in a press statement said the evacuation of these homes was carried out after notifications were sent by district officers of these areas. He stressed there is coordination among all police stations. Al-Ali said the public security sector is keen to track down violators of residence law through widespread campaigns. He indicated the public security sector yesterday seized 56 violators to residence laws, 22 people wanted by law, 29 reported absconding and issued 335 traffic citations.
‘Late hours problem’
The Ministry of Interior, in cooperation with the Kuwait Municipality, plans to determine working hours for investment, commercial, and industrial activity, especially restaurants, cafes, billiard and Internet cafÈ halls, and other stores, reports a local Arabic daily.
Assistant Undersecretary for Public Security Affairs, Major-General Abdulfattah Al-Ali in a letter addressed to the Municipality has requested for a meeting to discuss the security issues in these areas to ensure peace and prevent crime.
Al-Ali stressed the public security affairs sector faces multiple problems because of the very fact that working hours of some sectors are not specified since some of the shops remain open until late hours and well past midnight which causes a big problem.
