39 residence law violators nabbed
Some 39 residency law violators were apprehended by security operatives from the Criminal Investigation Department in Mirqab, Kuwait City, in the ongoing campaign by Citizenship and Passport Affairs sector across the country, says an Interior Ministry press statement.
The campaign targets illegal residents, including those who escaped from their sponsors and others against whom absconding cases have been filed. The sector confirmed that the campaign will continue in an indeterminate period to enforce law, and the people found sheltering law violators will face the rigor of law. All suspects arrested during the operation have since been referred to concerned authorities.
