Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Ports Affaires at the Ministry of Interior, Major-General Faisal Al-Saneen emphasized on the high security alert at all air, sea and land ports, reports Al- Rai daily.
This, he said, is “in light of the security situation in the region and the complex methods used by the people and the terrorists to smuggle contraband into the country. He said tighter controls will be exercised at all border ports — entry and exits — in the form of through checks on passports to cover all aspects of security to ensure safety and security in the country.
On demands by Britain to tighten security procedures in Kuwait to protect borders, Saneen said in a press statement, a British delegation was in Kuwait to look at the measures adopted by the security authorities. Regarding accusations that some important figures were behind the drug smuggling operations in the country, Saneen said “this is not true, and the statistics issued by the concerned authorities clearly show that those who are behind this are ordinary people.
Statistics also show those who are involved in drug trafficking are expatriates.” On smuggling of weapons, he replied, “we cannot eliminate this phenomenon 100 percent, in spite of the use of computers and technology to help arrest the smugglers, because the modus operandi of the smugglers seems to change each time.
