The Ministry of Interior is studying the files of people who hold dual citizenship, reports a local daily quoting knowledgeable source. The main purpose is to find out how these people obtained the dual citizenship in violation of Articles 11, 13 and 14 of Law No. 15 of 1959.
The source said the list includes the name of a former MP, a wellknown poet a.k.a. ‘poet of the opposition’ and yet another who is former program presenter who has been living outside the country for more than two months. The source explained the list will be submitted to the Council of Ministers within the next two weeks for a decision to be taken in this regard.
Meanwhile, the source denied the allegation that Sa’ad Al-Ajmi was deported arbitrarily. Al-Ajmi was informed about the decision one week before his arrest that he should leave the country and was given enough time to make ‘necessary arrangement’ but he deliberately delayed until the day he was supposed to leave the country — April 20, 2015.
The source pointed out Al-Ajmi deliberately delayed arriving at the Deportation Center on the agreed date and the security forces had no option but to arrest him and expel him from the country. The source added Al-Ajmi posted a tweet on his Twitter account on April 19 evening saying it is his last day in Kuwait. He pointed out, he was seeking fake heroism by claiming be was subjected to abuse and deported arbitrarily to arouse public opinion.
