Kuwait City: Kuwait has announced that it will not tolerate any violation of public decency and morality.
The Interior Ministry vowed to punish Kuwaiti and expatriate celebrities who publish indecent pictures or videos through social media platforms, local media reported.
Issued by the ministry’s Public Ethics and Cybercrime Department, the statement comes after the arrest of one Iranian and one Kuwaiti fashionista after they published indecent pictures on social media.
The Iranian woman had no explanation to justify the publication of the indecent material, including clips and pictures on her account, according to a reliable security source, quoted by Al Anba Arabic daily.
The ministry emphasised that it will continue to monitor and follow up on any issues that violate public morals on social media and will not tolerate anyone who misuses social media platforms.
Authorities have also issued clear instructions to immediately deport expatriates who violate the decency code in addition to their names being added to the list of persons barred from entering the country.
Three days ago, Kuwaiti authorities deported Lebanese TV presenter Sazdel for posting online video clips and pictures of hers seen as violating public morals.
